2020 Lieb Cellars Estate Pinot Blanc, North Fork of Long Island, USA (750ml)
Fermented entirely in stainless steel tanks, this wine is vibrant and crisp with notes of lemongrass, rose petals, and sugared lemon peels. After a finish of star fruit and green apple, there is a touch of sea spray.
The 2020 Pinot Blanc Estate is unoaked, very dry and comes in at 11.9% alcohol. Nicely done, this has a feeling of substance in the mid-palate and fine structure too. It seems tightly wound and smoothly textured, with a fresh feel. That doesn't mean there is no fruit, by the way, because this is also expressive and tasty. To justify my enthusiasm, this has to hold well for a few years, but it should. In the meanwhile, it's super, and it is worth leaning up a little on it in its exuberant youth.
