Wine Review: This light yellow colored Pinot Blanc opens with an attractive honeydew melon bouquet with a hint of apple. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and slightly viscous. The flavor profile is a mineral infused peach with notes green Anjou pear. The finish is dry and lingers slightly. This Pinot Blanc would pair well with pasta carbonnara. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Vinified with total focus on the fruit characteristics of the Pinot Blanc grape – elusive peach and jasmine blossom notes in the bouquet, a beautifully bodied mid-palate, and a flood of fruit and floral flavors. The wine was vinified entirely in stainless steel to preserve the freshness of fruit, no oak barrels, no malolactic fermentation. Ideal accompaniment to fish, poultry, and pasta. Benefits from being served chilled. With a perfectly balanced acidity, you’ll find it great to sip, and versatile for food and wine pairing.
