2018 The Four Graces Pinot Blanc, Willamette Valley
90 Points - Wine & Spirits
The 2018 Pinot Blanc is bright and refreshing. Aromas of yellow peach and lemon zest mix with tropical fruit notes of pineapple and guava. The palate continues with juicy peach and Asian pear flavors. The bright fruit is complemented by refreshing citrus and mineral notes, which linger on the finish.

The 2018 vintage started with a relatively mild spring with average rain fall. What was surprising was the lack of rain in the early summer. 2018 happened to be one of the driest summers on record in the Dundee Hills AVA and the Willamette Valley. Fortunately, although we were drier than normal, temperatures stayed modest. As we came into fall and time to harvest the dry conditions continued and we were able to pick the Pinot Noir for this Rose right when we wanted to.
The grapes for The Four Graces Pinot Blanc come from our Foley Family Estate vineyard, Elvenglade vineyard and Niederberger vineyard in the Willamette Valley.
