Straw green color. roasted, pineapple and papaya aromas and flavors of roasted pineapple and papaya, green apple, and spiced nuts with a supple, soft, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, delightful, carefree melon rind, golden beets, and edible flowers finish with fine, dusty tannins and a suggestion of oak. An interesting savory white blend sipper.

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.
