Description
 
Once again 2016 has turned out to be a terrific vintage at Orsi Vineyard in Mendocino. When we first walked this vineyard in spring 2005, we envisioned creating a unoaked white from a varietal that had good natural acidity, aromatic lift and the ability to be versatile as an aperitif and equally complimentary tableside. The 2016 Orsi definitely delivers on that premise. We picked in two passes in 2016, leaving the oldest section on the vine for added maturity. The result is classic Orsi Pinot Blanc, with the citrus and apple-inflected fruit balanced by natural acidity. Refreshing and inviting, the 2016 Orsi has that special interplay of fruit and tension that is reserved only for the best of vintages.

Textbook Orsi Vineyard aromatics of roasted lemon, citrus and green apple. The palate is lively and bright, with the orchard citrus fruits juicy and textured, while the acidity supplies ample freshness and delineation. Savory, light, refreshing and very versatile tableside.
