Wine Review: This pale white gold colored Pinot Blanc from Pax opens with a crushed seashells and mild lychee bouquet with hints of Bosc pear and ginger. On the palate, this wine is light plus bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, brisk and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is chalky minerality, kiwi, and lemon verbena blend with notes of saline and lime zest. We also detected some hints of lychee, ginger, and a touch of strawberry. The finish is dry and refreshing and lingers for quite a while. The Tasting Panel would serve this Pinot Blanc cool and pair it with snow crab with garlic butter or halibut kabobs. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Aromatic white flowers, lychee and exotic perfumes of musk and sea air. Bright, focused, and alive this wine pulses with electricity. The palate adds some roundness and weight, and all that soft-middle Pinot Blanc fruit is present, but it is the salt and sand and concrete aging that keep the laser beam focus of this wine in the forefront. Impossible to have one sip, you will want to buy this by the case and have it handy as the weather warms this spring season.
