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.
