Wine Review: If you want to try a different light white wine, then give this almost clear colored Pinot Blanc from Italy a try. It opens with a mild and pleasant pear bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic and round. The flavor profile is a tasty mild mineral infused Anjou pear with hints of white pepper and a touch of lemon verbena. The finish is dry and fades away nicely. This Pinot Blanc is food friendly and would pair well with swordfish kabobs. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Brilliant straw yellow colour with a green tint. Very fine, fruity (apples, peaches), forward varietal aroma. Pronounced, clean, elegant, grapey flavour, light to medium-bodied with a fresh mouth-watering finish. When properly cellared, this wine may be kept for at least 2 - 4 years. Suggested food: As an aperitif, with starters, salads, asparagus, all kind of seafood and pasta dishes.
