Wine Review: This white gold colored Pinot Blanc from Oregon is very good. It opens with an appealing mild floral and gentle apricot bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very nicely balanced and slightly mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a chalky Anjou pear with hints of ginger, saline and green apple. The finish is dry and it subtlety fades away. This Pinot Blanc is a very food friendly and versatile wine. I would pair this wine with grilled halibut. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The Meredith Mitchell Vineyard Pinot Blanc is our unique take on this Alsatian classic. The aromatics show depth and layered complexity. A hint of barrel leads immediately to notes of grapefruit and papaya, with an underlying briny character. On a second swirl, the smell of fresh almond flower comes through with richer, tropical fruit on its heels. The palate has weight without being heavy, gliding from flavors of kiwi fruit to persimmon and nougat. The flavor lingers, the finish is long, and the wine is undeniably striking.
