2011 Chateau St. Jean Pinot Blanc Robert Young Alexander Valley

2011 Chateau St. Jean Pinot Blanc Robert Young Alexander Valley

In a classic style for Pinot Blanc grapes from this vineyard, the wine opens with dreamy aromas of white peach, honeysuckle and green melon. A core of bright lemon and ripe pear flavors shaded with a spicy note of clove are framed in an elegant, silky texture. A balanced acidity keeps the purity of the fruit vibrant throughout the full finish.

About This Wine
VINTAGE & VINEYARDS
Tucked in a sheltered cove at the northern end of Alexander Valley on the western base of the Mayacamas mountain range, the famous Robert Young Vineyard has a long history of growing superior grapes in its fine alluvial loam soils.

WINEMAKING
Made from true Pinot Blanc plantings, this wine is crafted using traditional winemaking techniques. The wine went through a combination of barrel fermentation (15%) as well as stainless steel fermentation (85%). The barrel fermented portion was aged sur lie for 9 months in small French oak barrels and underwent partial malolactic fermentation to impart richness and complexity. The majority of the wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks and barrels to retain the fresh fruit character. Stainless steel barrels allow wine contact with the yeast lees, which adds creaminess and ensures a smooth texture to the wine.

TASTING NOTES
This wine is a classic Pinot Blanc with abundant aromas of white peach, honeysuckle and fresh melon. A core of bright citrus and ripe pear flavors with a slight spicy note of clove are framed in an elegant, silky texture. Balanced acidity keeps the purity of the fruit vibrant throughout the lingering finish.
