Have You Ever Tried White Pinot Noir?

This Okanagan bottle is the place to start.

You’re not tripping: this bottle from pinot champion Spearhead is indeed a white wine made from the famed red grape (Tinhorn Creek made a similar experimental batch last year, too). But let’s calm down for a second. A large portion of most Champagne is also made from pinot, so this white wine/red grape thing is not without precedent. To accomplish this, you need to use a very light press of whole clusters of grapes, letting the clear juice run off and avoiding contact with the grape skins—that would impart the colour. And the result is a treat: some ripe peach and crisp nectarine that’s all vibrancy and zip. And at $24, it’s a rarity without a rarefied price.
