Bright yellow straw color. Nutty, tropical aromas and flavors of fruit cocktail, sweet plantain, and peanut butter with a supple, bright, fruity light-to-medium body and a breezy papaya finish with soft tannins. A tropical trail mix of a 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.
