ÉLEVÉE WINEGROWERS Pinot Noir 'Glencolmcille' 2017

Not widely found, this still, white version of a Pinot Noir is a testament to the style. Named after the place in Ireland where the winemaker proposed, yet grown and produced in Willamette Valley, this wine delightfully stretches the concept of reflection of place. Gorgeous “Champagne” gold with very pronounced aromas of apricot, golden delicious apples, minerality, fresh dough rising, dried white flowers, and a hint of night blooming jasmine. This wine really zooms and grows as it evolves and coats the palate with lots of acid and a peach flavored slightly oily texture that mellows the zing. Long, quite dry, flavor soaked finish with a food friendly bitterness. Enough acid to keep fresh but why wait? Would not want to see it change.
