2015 Fu-Mei Pinot Noir Blanc

2015 Fu-Mei Pinot Noir Blanc
2015 Fu-Mei Pinot Noir Blanc

At Patton Valley Vineyard we have a tradition of designating special wines to celebrate those whom we love. Continuing in this tradition, we were honored in 2012 to name this exceptional Pinot Noir Blanc in honor of co-owner Dave Chen’s mother: Fu-Mei Chen. Fu-Mei, Chinese for ‘rich and beautiful’, aptly describes this Pinot Noir Blanc—a wine we loved so much the first time we had to make it again. Made with fruit sourced from the always graceful 10 Acre block of our estate vineyard, these grapes were quickly pressed, the juice separated from the red skins, and barrel fermented in the tradition of fine white Burgundy.

This wine is as intriguing as it is delicious. Aging on its original fermentation lees for 16 months—longer than any other Patton Valley wine—as well as infrequent batonage (lees stirring) gives this wine its rich and beautiful mouthfeel. Ample fragrances of honeysuckle, white peach, lemon sorbet, and toasted almonds spill out of the glass at first pour. On the palate these flavors evolve coalescing to provide deep and intense flavor. Immediately broad in the mouth, the Fu-Mei is balanced by ample acidity that draws out the mid-palate with astounding richness and a crisp lingering finish. This is an age-worthy white: drink now or cellar for 3-6 years.
