Winemaker Notes

This wine exhibits a distinct minerality with classic citrus and pear aromas and flavors, with hazelnut and creamy oak overtones. Great structure and pure flavors are the hallmark of this pedigreed wine.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 93
Wine & Spirits

Grown on a steep hillside facing north by northwest, the fruit at Block Eleven achieves intensity of flavor with restrained ripeness. Fine oak character surrounds it without entering the center of the wine, which is focused on citrus and fresh cream flavors, lemon curd and apple butter. There's a floral scent of jasmine that brings out the wine's underlying minerality. An elegant match for arctic char roasted with wild mushrooms.
