The 2009 Pinot Blanc opens with aromas of exotic fruits, including grapefruit, gooseberry, guava and pineapple, along with perfumed honeysuckle, jasmine and orange blossom, with a hint of lemongrass. On the palate, this wine has flavors of honeydew, juicy grapefruit, green apple and stone fruits, marked with an initial richness and a hint of sweetness that evolves into a bright, fresh acidity. Enjoy this wine by itself as an aperitif, or pair it with raw sushi, shellfish, Thai food and pasta primavera. It is ready to drink now, but has the complexity to hold in the cellar for an additional two or three years. Serve well chilled.
"This rich white leads with broad apple scents and a hint of nutmeg spice. The quince flavors are equally rich and ripe, the texture broad and succulent, bearing the weight for veal or spaetzle."
Wine & Spirits
"Lively, silky and refreshing for its pear, citrus and green almond flavors, dancing brightly through the finish. Drink now. "
