Wine Review: This almost clear colored Pinot Blanc from Oregon was very popular with the Tasting Panel. It opens with a faint lime bouquet with floral hints and a touch of anise. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and approachable. The flavor profile is a mild green apple that is nicely blended with lemon, minerality, green tea and ginger ale. The panel thought it was a pretty complex white wine. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely. If you have never tried Pinot Blanc, this would be a good one to start with. The panel suggested pairing this Pinot Blanc with chicken piccata with Yorkshire pudding. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Aromatics of stone fruits, nectarine, white peach and yellow plum jump from the glass with underlying notes of marzipan, vanilla and honeycomb. The mouth is generous through the mid-palate with hints of green apple and persimmon. The finish is bright and balanced by a touch of sweetness.

Organic status: not organic

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.
