Wine Review: This light yellow colored Pinot Blanc from Navarro is a very good value. It opens with a fragrant quince and mild grapefruit bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, round and very nicely balanced between its fruit and acidity. The flavor profile is a tart quince and green apple blend. I also detected a hint of nectarine and mild minerality. The finish is dry and fades away nicely. This Pinot Blanc is a real quaffer. I would pair it with grilled weisswurst. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This gem has flavors of quince, Asian pear and tangerine with a flinty, tart finish.

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
