Crew Work White Pinot Noir 2016

Crew Work White Pinot Noir 2016

Elkton, Oregon

$23.75 / each

Description:

This beguiling, super energetic wine from tiny producer Crew Work may fool you into thinking it's a rosé. But looks can oftentimes be deceiving, as this is actually a white Pinot Noir - essentially whole-cluster pressed Pinot vinified as a white wine without any extended skin contact. The resulting wine is pale copper in hue and features a bone-dry, racy palate full of ripe strawberry and lemon notes.
