2018 Polarity

 An intriguing white wine made from red Pinot Noir grapes. Barrel fermented in French oak and sur-lie aged to enhance richness and mouthfeel.
Notes of white peaches, melon, and ginger on the nose. The rich palate features hints of apricots, vanilla bean, and tropical fruit, and carries a bit more weight than a typical white wine. The long finish features notes of toffee and caramel and is quite dry and refreshing.
The grapes were hand picked into small, thirty pound baskets to prevent bruising. On the crush pad, we gently destemmed the grapes, then optically sorted the grape berries. The optical sorter used cameras to evaluate the color and texture of each berry, and selected only those which met our standards for the best possible fruit for Polarity. We immediately pressed the grapes after optical sorting to minimize skin contact, creating a pale colored juice. The juice was barrel fermented, then underwent a secondary malolactic fermentation. The wine was sur-lie aged for just over ten months, and stirred about every three days to enhance the mouthfeel and add richness
This wine is exceptional with seafood and fish, including fresh oysters and pan-seared rainbow trout in lemon caper butter. The weight of the wine also allows it to work nicely with heavier fare, including roasted turkey and herb infused grilled pork tenderloin - the richness of the wine stands up to the food, while the crispness provides freshness and balance.
