Yellow straw color. Aromas of vanilla, greenhouse, and mixed melon salad with a supple, crisp, fruity light-to-medium body and an effortless, medium-length firm pear, fruit cup, chopped nuts, and granny smith apple finish with soft, fruit tannins and a suggestion of oak. A plush pinot blanc for sipping upon a chaise.

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.
