Description

Who says a traditionalist producer can't also be an innovator? A Pinot Noir from Piemonte is rare enough, but one vinified as a white is surely unique. 

The fruit for this cuvée is drawn from Pinot Nero vines planted in the 1970's, on the cool, sheltered east and northeast facing slopes of the Bricco Boschis cru. The clones came from Champagne and the original idea was to produce a little sparkling wine. Then the Cavallotto's decided to make a red, but this lacked any varietal character and so a unique kind of white was born. Made from red grapes but vinified as a white wine, gently pressed off skins, fermented naturally and aged for nine months on lees, in tank and old barrels. Every time we've tried this at the winery we've enjoyed it. Finally we mustered up the courage to bring a few cases into Australia. The 2013 is an excellent example of their style: full bodied with plenty of depth and structure, a fleshy texture, tropical fruit, citrus pith, floral and iodine notes and a racy, savoury close. A fascinating and delicious white. For those intimate with Cavallotto's wines, this was previously labelled as Langhe Bianco. Due to the recent changes to Italian wine labelling laws, the name needed changing and so the wine is now called 'Pinner', an acronym for Pinot Nero.
