Wine Review: This light yellow colored Pinot Bianco is very good. It opens with a Bosc pear bouquet with a hint of apricot and honey. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic and nicely coats your mouth. The flavors profile is a tart Granny Smith apple with notes of minerality. I also detected hints of pineapple, honey, lime and almond. It is pretty complex. The finish is dry and its flavors linger and are nicely prolonged. This wine would pair well with pan seared rainbow trout with a lemon-butter sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Color: sparkling straw yellow Smell: The multifaceted aroma of this wine derives from a combination of ripe fruit, including honeydew melon, white peach, pear and Golden Delicious apple, together with the aromas of quince jelly and dried fruit such as pear, orange and pineapple, on the one hand, and graphite notes and a hint of jasmine with a mineral touch on the other. Taste: The interplay of fruity aromatic and salty components is repeated on the palate, where the soft and creamy elements gain greater strength in a wine with a lingering, firmly minerally and spicy character on the aftertaste. Pairing: Spiced lobster and grilled white Terlano asparagus with pancetta sauce and roasted pistachio nuts.
