Brand new wine from the Pisoni family! Named after a mountain that Jeff and Mark Pisoni used to climb to go camping when they were young. Gorgeous blend of Pinot Grigio and Pinot Blanc from Monterey County. The Pisoni family donates $1 from every bottle sold to Ocean Conservancy. They’re keeping it Local for this initial vintage and donating to the Montery Bay Aquarium. Perfect spring time wine!
Producer Notes: The newest member of the Lucy family, the 2021 Pico Blanco flaunts its youth as its pale gold shimmers in the glass. Not to be outdone by its appearances alone, this carefully craft blend of 70% Pinot Gris and 30% Pinot Blanc sports a stunning mélange of vibrant aromatics. Red apple, Meyer lemon, and white peach pair with more delicate notes of honeysuckle and a chalky minerality that transports the senses to the limestone slopes of the famed peak. Unmistakable energy in the form of lime, lemon tart, and crunchy acidity meld with supple, rounded flavors of nectarine, ripe stonefruits, and almond skin. Careful management of oxygen before and during fermentation and 100% neutral French oak barrel aging has created a refreshing example of a blend seldom seen in Monterey County, but one that promises to have a very bright future.
