Edi Simcic, Beli Pinot
(BAY-lee PEE-noh)


Tasting Notes: From master-winemaker Aleks Simcic, son of the incomparable Edi, comes this extraordinary Beli Pinot (Pinot Blanc) made from 20 to 30 year-old German clones. It is bursting with anise, ginger, and pink grapefruit aromas. Medium body, clear acidity, mineral structure, with honeyed white peach and Acacia blossom aromas emanate from an expansive, medium length finish. Aged just under one year in French oak, it is lively, brisk, and clean, with exceptional bright tones that belie its oak treatment.
