Yotes Court 'Hands and Heels' Pinot Blanc 2021

The Yotes Court Pinot Blanc vines are growing at 140m above sea level in one of the highest vineyard blocks in the country. Planted in sandy soil in a former apricot orchard these 5-year-old vines have now produced their second harvest. This well rounded dry wine has aromas of pear with floral notes of lilac, jasmine and a hint of toastiness from a short time in oak. The palate is smooth, full and long lived.  The name of the wine 'Hands and Heels' refers to when a jockey rides a horse in a race using just hands and heels, allowing the horse to use its natural ability and fitness to outshine the other horses needing only very gentle persuasion. At Yotes Court the Pinot Blanc vines have been respectfully tended throughout the growing season to produce flavourful, clean fruit requiring little intervention by the winemaker to create a gentle, dry crisp wine.
