2021 Lichen Estate White Pinot Noir
This is a white wine. A little like Blanc de Noir, except still and from California!
This innovative Pinot Noir tastes like no other. Jazzy white peach and nectarine stone fruit balanced by racy acidity dance across the palate. Fermented mostly in stainless, it went on to age for a year in Hungarian and French oak puncheons, bringing a weight and texture all its own. Off dry on the entry, it finishes mouthwatering and savory.
After years of experimenting with white pinot noir first with sparkling wine and later for still wine, Doug Stewart decided in 2016 to produce a white pinot noir by itself. He was the first in the Anderson Valley and maybe in California to perfect this wine made from red grapes. Many soon followed. He leaves it in puncheons for a year to round it out. This is a limited production every year now so it does not get rated, but Robert Parker has been a fan from the beginning.
