Wine Review: This light straw colored Pinot Blanc is very good. It opens with a mild pear and wet stone bouquet with a hint of green melon. On the palate, this wine is light to medium bodied, rather acidic and lively. The flavor profile is a mineral infused Granny Smith apple and Anjou pear with notes of honey and touch of Pilsner beer. The finish is quite dry and refreshing. I would pair this Pinot Blanc with Thai shrimp spring rolls. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2014 "100 Hills" Pinot Blanc is a delightfully fruity wine, with a fresh aroma nuanced by hints of basil and mint. It has a lovely creaminess and a slightly nutty character that is balanced perfectly by a fine minerality. It is a superb companion for many foods at the dinner table any day of the week.

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.
