Cotiere Blanc de Noir
The 2022 Santa Rita Hills “Blanc De Noir” Pinot Noir is a blend of the La Rinconada , Sanford & Benedict, and Bentrock Vineyards. This unique white wine is made entirely from Pinot Noir with minimal skin contact and native fermentation in stainless steel barrels. Which has enabled us to capture a very unique expression of this compelling varietal. These three vineyards are uniquely located on the cool western edge of this appellation. La Rinconada and Sanford & Benedict Vineyards enjoy a touch more afternoon warmth in clay and alluvium based soils, while the Bentrock Vineyard sits above the other two, more exposed to coastal winds in shallow oceanic rock. Only 42 cases made.
