Torii Mor Pinot Blanc 2021
2021 Pinot Blanc
Due to cold temperatures at the beginning of the year, bud break was a bit later than usual in late April. However, with warmer than normal spring weather, bloom began early during the first week
of June, leading the Willamette Valley into the hottest summer on record. High grape yields allowed growers to drop fruit, assuring the best quality fruit for our harvest which lasted September 17 – October 18. It was a smoky summer due to multiple forest fires, but we were lucky to avoid any smoke taint.

The Torii Mor Pinot Blanc offers a forward, bright, fresh Floral and grapefruit aroma framed by an aromatic cedar note. The flavors show bright acidity, minerality, a floral and citrus savory mix. The wine texture is lean, bright, medium rich, with juicy acidity from beginning to end. The finish is long with lasting citrus (bitter grapefruit) notes and a dry-mineral sensation. This Pinot Blanc will be a great companion to seafood dishes.
