Wine Review: This pale white gold colored Pinot Blanc from Oregon is very good. It opens with a fragrant Bosc pear bouquet with a hint of ginger. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mineral infused grapefruit with notes of Anjou pear and lime with just a hint of ginger. The finish is dry and refreshing. This Pinot Blanc is food friendly and would pair very nicely with seared scallops with Stuart’s Brussel sprouts. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: We’ve been anticipating the release of the 2014 Pinot Blanc since missing a vintage of this wine during 2013…and we couldn't be more pleased now that the wait is over! Sticking our noses in the glass we were greeted with young, subdued aromas showcasing sweet cologne and line-dried linens, which evolved to yellow and white flowers, slate, and watermelon. The palate evokes summer memories of mouthwatering lemonade, bright with sweet ginger and hints of green apple candy, finishing with elegantly-balanced acid and length, and holding moderate weight and persistence. Super clean and fresh, we couldn't wait any longer to show it to the world.
