July Wine Pick: Amity Vineyards Willamette Valley 2015 White Pinot Noir

This WINE PICK of the month was written for the Luke's of Cape Cod website.




By pressing the grapes and not allowing further skin contact you can make white wine from any red grape but a select few. This is known as Blanc de Noir (White from Black) and mostly done with Champagne and other sparkling wines. Pinot Noir is the main varietal subjugated to Blanc de Noir.

Amity Vineyards is out of Willamette, Oregon. Producing organic wines since it was founded in 1974, it's stacked up quite a bit of national and international awards and praises. They make many different kinds of wine but they're most known for their Pinot Noir. Why would they make a white one? Because it's awesome.

The color of the 2015 White Pinot Noir is a light copper yellow. The nose and palate are bright and lively with fresh lemon juice, cantaloupe, tart red berries, cooked pineapple and white flowers. It's full bodied with an absurdly high level of acidity that leaves your mouth salivating on the finish, begging for food.

The word amity means friendship. This wine is too cool to keep to yourself, so explore it with friends. Pair with fried fish, stuffed quahogs, or nachos.
