Wine Review: I found this Pinot Blanc to be a slightly off-dry and polished wine that is a pale white gold colored with green flecks. It opens with ripe pear, grapefruit and apple peel on the nose. It has a medium-plus body, medium-plus acidity, and is slightly creamy, juicy and well-balanced. There are flavors of spiced bosc pear and grapefruit with peach pit minerality. The finish is long, dry and citric. I would pair this very good value Pinot Blanc with a roasted sea bass with fresh pesto. – Mark

Winemaker Notes: The entry-level "100 Hills" wines are produced with about 40% estate-harvested fruit, primarily from sites that are not as dominated by limestone as the estate’s best vineyards. The fruit is harvested by hand, fermented naturally and matured in 50% stainless steel tanks and 50% large, neutral wooden casks. This combination retains the lively, bright fruit while bringing an extra dimension of texture from maturation in wood. This is a creamy, fresh Pinot Blanc with an animating acidity and a fine minerality. It's elegant with an invigorating freshness of ripe fruit and nuts. It is an ideal Pinot Blanc for everyday enjoyment.
