Blanc du Puits Sec
Referred to as “the white of the vineyard” Blanc du Puits Sec is comprised of mostly Pinot Gris with a smaller measure of Gewürztraminer. On September 26th we picked all of our old vine Gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris planted in 1986 along with smaller amounts of Pinot Blanc, Traminer, Rieslaner, Kerner and this year Gruner Veltliner. Yes, this year the Gruner went into the Blanc du Puits Sec blend. Since all of those varietals ripen at slightly different times my goal was to find the happy time when the subtle differences in ripeness from each varietal would add complexity. To further that philosophy I co-fermented them all in stainless steel. You are greeted by an intoxicating nose of rose petal with hints of lime and other floral notes. On the palate more lime with lime zest coming in and hints of spice on the finish.
