Terroir: Pinot Blanc is often assumed to be a "blender" for large wine blends with multiple varieties, or at best, an unassuming white wine. This is not so with Michigan grown Pinot Blanc. Pinot Blanc grown on the Old Mission Peninsula is like no other. The grape loves the cool growing season and the sandy loam soils. It is able to ripen to an expression of powerful aromatics and intense fruity length while maintaining a buzzing acidity, which keeps it fresh.
Winemaking Notes: The Left Foot Charley Pinot Blanc is a compilation of three great vineyards: 56% Shangri-La, 39% Prairie School, and 5% Seventh Hill Farm. Each vineyard is fermented independently in stainless steel to get a feel for their respective terroir contributions. The three work very well to bring a complement of fresh apple and pear qualities with a firm, layered palate.
