An early incarnation of our Monolith Series dedicated to innovation and experimentation. We wanted to try something different and make a serious, elegant white wine from our premium Pinot Noir grapes. That’s right, this is white wine made with 100% Pinot Noir! As always, the fruit was hand-picked and hand-sorted at the moment of optimal ripeness. It went directly into the press to minimize skin contact for a beautiful light golden hue. It was then barreled-down into French oak barriques where it went through fermentation on its gross lees. It was a “bubbling mess”, but it was great for the texture of the final product. There is certainly an esoteric and wine-geeky vibe here, but anyone who enjoys the rare and unique will love to try this wine.

Baked yellow apples and stewed pears make the first appearance on the nose followed by a subtle fennel and herbal mint quality. The oak influence on the wine brings forth notes of biscuit, toast and vanilla. On the palate, citrus rind like lemon and tangerine add a pop of freshness to an otherwise rich texture.

A wine like this can’t be found anywhere else and it’s being released at the optimum time for drinking. There may never be another chance to try it. Available in limited quantities while supplies last.
