Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Pinot Blanc from Elk Cove is very good. It opens with pear and lemon zest bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, round and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral influenced Anjou pear with notes of lime and a hint of almond. The finish is dry and its acidity and flavors linger nicely. This Pinot Blanc was liked by all that tried it. It would pair well with grilled swordfish kabobs. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Very fresh, with a bright nose of tangerine and apricot that is complemented with hints of wet slate and lilac. Lingering yet crisp, the palate delights with honeydew melon, lemongrass, candied ginger, and a lengthy grip of white tea.
