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
