Pale light golden straw color. Grassy, citrusy, exotic aromas of nectarine, fern, and lemon icing with a crisp, dry medium body and a complex, medium-length peach nectar, dill, fennel fronds, and slate finish with fine, fruit tannins. A bright and pure pinot blanc to please a crowd

Pinot Blanc

Serve in a White Wine Glass
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.

Enjoy these wines upon release and over their first three to five years; pair them with most seafood or lighter poultry dishes.
