High Hook Pinot Blanc 2017 - Willamette Valley, Oregon
Varietals: 100% Pinot Blanc
High Hook Pinot Blanc is made specifically to be a great match with seafood and shellfish. It’s mostly stainless steel-fermented with just enough barrel-aged wine to broaden the mid palate a bit and achieve a perfect balance. High Hook uses old barrels, so there are no oak aromas or flavors evident in the wine. It’s all about fruit and minerals and great acidity.
When founded Fish Hook Vineyards had three basic goals. First, they wanted to make really good wine that shows the true fruit character of the grapes and the subtle mineral and other earthy qualities of the vineyard. Second, money to support their bad habits (fishing) and have some fun doing it. And third, to do some good with some of the profits and tie it all in with their passion for fishing and the sea. Hence, Fish Hook Vineyards, High Hook Wines, the Striper on the label and involvement with several environmental and charitable organizations.
