It’s not often you come across a white pinot noir, which is why Amity strives to make their wine with a delicate touch to allow the unique properties of this red grape to come through as a white wine. They hand-pick their pinot noir grapes typically about a week earlier than when we pick for their red wines to preserve acidity. Then they are whole bunched pressed very gently which allows them to minimize maceration and have little color pick-up. Finally, they allow it to settle out in a tank overnight and then it is clean racked to ferment in stainless steel at a low temperature to retain aromatics.
