2016 Hiyu "Falcon Box" Columbia Gorge White Field Blend
All the fruit is picked together and basket pressed directly into Stockinger Demi Muid's for fermentation and aging. Its an alpine wine with the power and swelling richness of chardonnay, the breed and precision of Aligoté and Pinot Blanc, the exotic red essences of Pinot Noir, Meunier and Pinot Gris and the salinity of Melon de Bourgogne. Its a chameleon and at moments can remind one of Belluards Gringet based wines from the Savoie, Huet Chenin or the incredibly focused Meursault’s of Arnaud Ente.
