Wine Review: This pale straw colored Pinot Blanc is a steal at $15! It opens with an attractive mild peach bouquet with a hint of tangerine and wet stone. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a very tasty green apple with notes of nicely integrated minerality and hints of Anjou pear and mandarin orange. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity last for quite some time after the wine is gone. This Pinot Blanc would pair well with grilled halibut. Enjoy – Ken (Winery Direct)

Winemaker Notes: A cuvee including 6% Chardonnay delighted the staff with its bright, citrus-herbal flavors and fresh clover aromas. Celebrate spring by serving it with fresh Laychee cheese or pair with sausages and fennel-apple slaw for an affordable supper.
