Review:

Originally our Pinot Blanc was sourced exclusively from Freedom Hill vineyard. However, when the vineyard was attacked by phylloxera, we found refuge (and some pretty great juice) in the slopes of Meredith Mitchell west of McMinnville.

In 2007, Dan and Helen Dusschee replanted Pinot Blanc at Freedom Hill. After scrupulous care and much patience it is this 2009 vintage that marks the return of Freedom Hill Pinot Blanc. This marriage of Freedom Hill and Meredith Mitchell provides tremendous complexity and vibrant minerality. - the winery

Bright lemon zest and tropical lime curd wrap around the mouth with clean acidity that makes this wine refreshing and cheerful. A slight herbal note on the finish is reminiscent of a summer picnic in the garden. The tropical notes would match well with passionfruit or coconut shrimp served over raisin-studded sticky rice. - Avalon

Pinot Blanc is a lighter-colored natural mutation of Pinot Gris. Our source for this fruit is a one acre block of Freedom Hill Vineyard and Meredith Mitchell Vineyard. After pressing the juice, it is fermented in one year old French barrels. The new wine remains in barrel with the original yeast and is not racked until bottling. The wine has a floral/mineral focus. 200 cases are produced. -- the winery
