Discovering White Pinot Noir

By Hvwinegoddess
Red and Rose wine get their color when the juice sits on the skins and the color is extracted into the wine.  Rose wines sit for very short periods of time like the drive from the field to the winery or up to 24 hours on the skins to get the pink color.  Red wines can sit on the skins for 7 days or more.  Not only are they extracting color but flavor and tannins as well.
So what's the deal with a White Pinot Noir? The Pinot Noir grapes are brought to the winery and pressed immediately and made into a wine before they have time to sit on the skins and extract any color.  Now you have a White Pinot Noir. An the taste, well let's explore.Discovering White Pinot Noir
I tasted Left Coast Cellars 2015 White Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley in Oregon. My first White Pinot Noir experience. It's always good being the first because I had no expectations. The grapes were fermented in stainless steel and sur lie aged in stainless steel for 5 months.
The wine was almost crystal clear and very acidic, It looked like a glass of water. Aromas of stone fruit filled the glass with hints of lemon and spiced pear.  Citrus flavors with a touch of honey filled my palate. There was hints of minerality throughout the experience.  
Try something different.  The SRP is $25
