White Pinot Noir differentiates itself from regular Pinot Noir by being pressed first and then fermented, whereas regular Pinot Noir is fermented on the skins.  If it sounds a lot like the process for Rosé, it is, but there are differences, primarily in the degree to which the fruit is pressed in order to prevent extracting too much color, but that means a much lower yield and a much more expensive process.  The differences do not end there – even with a light press, there is still color to address and that requires the careful selection of a yeast strain to further reduce color. Another key treatment is the addition of Chardonnay lees which draws off the last bit of color while adding texture. And finally, time in barrel – a full year – imparts additional texture and complexity.  While in some ways this is a wine similar to Chardonnay, it is distinct in and of itself with a unique floral character while still exhibiting echoes of Pinot Noir. Barrel fermented and aged in 100% Neutral French Oak.  12.91% Alcohol.  Produced from the Pommard and 115 clones of Pinot Noir from Luminous Hills Vineyard
