Brooks Pinot Blanc Willamette Valley 2019
Brooks farms twenty acres in the Eola-Amity Hills, a sub-region of the Willamette Valley characterized by higher altitudes and the ocean winds that blow through the Van Duzer Corridor. Though not labeled as such, this was made entirely from Crannell vineyard fruit and fermented in stainless steel. It's a lively mix of pear, apricot, starfruit and lemon curd notes, with crisp and juicy minerality. In short, it's lip-smackingly delicious, with impeccable freshness. This Pinot Blanc works best as an aperitif wine, or paired with pasta salads and whole, roasted fish.
