Pale yellow straw color. Aromas and flavors of banana taffy and apple yogurt with a soft, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, relaxed finish manifesting nuances of vanilla cream with no oak flavor. A smooth and easy drinking pinot blanc.

Pinot Blanc

Wine Glass White.jpg
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.
