Hildegard was an 8th Century queen where legend has it she grew weary of drunken knights spilling red wine all over her place, so she had servants replant some of the vineyards to white grapes. A blend of a blend of Pinot Gris (50%), Pinot Blanc (40%) and Aligoté (10%), aged for 2 years in French oak, 100% new (long for a white). Pleasant aromas of fruit, spice and cedar. On the palate slight peach and citrus notes, well integrated with oak and spice. Lingering finish ending with nutty spice character. This white was something special! Tasting Sample!
