About Pinot Blanc White Wine

About Pinot Blanc White Wine
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.

Silvery emerald straw color. Aromas and flavors of lemon, greek yogurt, and hints of fennel with a supple, crisp, medium-to-full body and a smooth, breezy finish with no oak flavor. A crisp, old world style Pinot Blanc refresher.

Straw color. Aromas of lemon pith, cucumber, white raspberry, and lettuce with a medium body and a medium fresh stream water and pebbles, lime zest, and oyster shell finish. A racy wine that begs for oysters.
