HARPER VOIT 2012 PINOT BLANC "SURLIE" WILLAMETTE VALLEY 750ml

As a fifteen-year veteran of the Oregon wine industry, Drew Voit is intimately familiar with exceptional vineyard sites. While serving as the Associate Winemaker at Domaine Serene Winery, and then as Winemaker for Shea Wine Cellars, he worked with some of the best vineyards in the Willamette Valley. Harper Voit is the logical progression of that work: seeking out great sites, excellent fruit, and long-term relationships with growers.

While pinot gris has been the white wine grape of choice for most of the Willamette Valley, there is currently a renaissance focusing other white wine varieties. Working with pinot blanc is based on the Willamette's historical European counterpart, Burgundy, where the variety had a long standing before being supplanted by (and replanted with) chardonnay. The choices in viticulture, vinification, and elevage are reflective of pinot blanc's historical roots, while still pressing forward and exploring its possibilities.

The 2012 Harper Voit Surlie Pinot Blanc, sourced from Crannell Vineyard in Eola-Amity AVA and Meredith Mitchell Vineyard in McMinnville AVA, is barrel fermented in used French oak and aged on lees for nine months. Reflecting the beautiful vintage, the fruit quality of the wine is bright, accompanied by laser-like acidity, a savory, complex palate and a lengthy, saline finish. Only 225 cases produced!
