2013 Heart & Hands Polarity Finger Lakes White Wine

13.9% alc., pH 3.43, TA 0.57, 201 cases, $29. Pinot Noir grapes whole cluster pressed with minimal skin contact and fermented in French oak. Lees stirring every few days after fermentation is complete. Aged 9 months in French oak barrels. Unfined and unfiltered. · Light pinkish orange color in the glass. Lovely aromas of blood orange, peach, tropical fruits and the slightest toasty oak. The flavors follow in step with the aromas adding a touch of apricot. Bright, crisp and refreshing, with a tangy orange zest finish. This wine is a welcome change of pace from the usual white varietal suspects. Score: 90. Reviewed November 20, 2014
