The 2018 Amity Vineyards Willamette Valley White Pinot Noir begins with pleasing aromas of raspberry, pear, citrus and a little tropical fruit. Taking a sip reveals a great, thick mouthfeel and layers of deep, tart flavors (primarily cherry, melon and pear). It ends dry and long with tons of lasting tasty tart and tropical fruit notes.
While it is entirely possible to produce a white wine from red grapes, I'm not entirely sure what distinguishes this particular wine from a Pinot Noir rosé as that's certainly what it looks and tastes like. (This is as opposed to something like Left Coast White Pinot which is much more white wine-like in appearance.) In the end; however, it really doesn't matter as either way this is pretty darn tasty. It should pair well with all the foods on your Christmas table too.
