Elk Cove Pinot Blanc 2010

Elk Cove Pinot Blanc 750ml 2010     
Sku: 22313

Established in 1974 by Pat and Joe Campbell on a secluded property in North Willamette Valley, Elk Cove Vineyards is one of Oregon’s oldest and most respected wine producers. The winery’s focus is on the Pinot ”trilogy”: Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc. The first vineyards were planted on gentle and/or steep south facing slopes of the Chehelam Mountains planted on Willakenzie silty loam and Laurelwood red-shot volcanic soil with excellent drainage. Today their sustainably farmed vineyards cover 600 acres on four separate sites including 180 acres of mature vineyards from the Estate, Windhill, Mount Richmond and Five Mountain Vineyards. Winemaker Adam Campbell continues the family tradition of noninterventionist winemaking through proper site selection, meticulous vine management, low yields and gravity flow at the winery.

 Wine Advocate 87 points (Aug 2012)
Corn shoots and green apple dominate the nose and subtly silken yet animating and juicy palate of Elk Cove?s 2010 Pinot Blanc ? their seventh bottling of that variety ? whose fruit comes from three of their estate vineyards. Four grams of residual sugar help round off a still exuberantly juicy and not too green apple-y, tart finish. I suspect this will continue to give pleasure for 2-3 years. (There are just shy of a thousand cases.)
