Wine Review: This white gold colored Pinot Blanc from Dutton Goldfield opens with an attractive quince and Bosc pear bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, juicy and lush. The flavor profile is a mineral infused ripe Bosc pear with notes of dried pineapple and touch of yellow grapefruit towards the end. The finish is dry and if flavors and acidity linger and last. I would pair the Pinot Blanc with a grilled weisswurst with sauerkraut. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2016 growing season gave us high acid fruit, making this Pinot Blanc even more mouthwateringly compelling. The peach and orange blossoms are accompanied by kiwi and lemon oil on the nose, along with a hint of cotton candy, promising a bright and luscious sip ahead. In the mouth, rounded pear and apricot flavors provide the creamy counterpoint to the zesty Meyer lemon finish. Enjoy it with seared scallops, soft shelled crabs, a vegetable frittata, or brie.
