About Pinot Blanc White Wine

About Pinot Blanc White Wine
Pinot Blanc is a white wine, made from the eponymous grape; top examples are produced in California, France and Germany. Sometimes referred to as a "poor man's Chardonnay," Pinot Blanc has flavors of apple and pear and is quite dry; some are made in steel tanks, while more full-bodied versions are aged in oak.

Dark apricot color. Aromas and flavors of apricot, orange marmalade, and buttermilk with a flat, dry light-to-medium body and a cheery finish. A lovely orange wine that offers just a hint of tannins and a soft, delicate approach.
