Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
An almost tropical style of wine with intense aromatics of pineapple, guava, nectarine, peach and floral notes. The palate is medium to full body with great fresh acidity holding it all together and still showing an abundance of fruit, primarily pineapple and stone fruit with a little bit of minerality showing up on the long finish.
Winemaker Notes
The Eclipse White 2020 was fermented and aged in its separate varieties, lots and vineyards until blending together in May 2021. The Chardonnay was fermented and aged in stainless steel to ferment cool for aromatics and preserve its fresh acidity. The wine was only racked once prior to being blended it with the Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc. The Pinot Gris was fermented and aged in neutral French oak with 50% being fermented on indigenous yeast. This portion of the wine was fined with bentonite for protein stability. Half of the Pinot Blanc was fermented in neutral oak and was allowed to go through malo-lactic fermentation (the Chardonnay and {Pinot Gris and Chardonnay were blocked from MLF). The wine was racked once prior to being blended. The final blend had no fining and was sterile filtered prior to bottling on June 24th, 2021.
Food Pairing Notes
This is a really exciting Eclipse white coming from the very ripe 2020 vintage. That said, it is still all about being approachable and simply enjoyed so sip this all week long with your weekday salads with grilled chicken, a seared fillet of rockfish or absolutely on its own while making dinner and with some good conversation.
