Fresh straw color. Dominant notes of fresh-squeezed lemon and tropical fruits give way to fragrant wisteria, jasmine and rose petal on the nose. This bright and racy wine delivers lemon curd, Granny Smith apples, kiwi and juicy blood oranges to the palate. A long finish brings the whole experience together with just a touch of stone fruit and minerals. Our 2011 Pinot Blanc will age well for four to six years. Serve slightly chilled. Try this acid-driven wine with delicious white-fish tacos, clam steamers, grilled prawns or a green papaya salad.
"A definitive, whitepepper spice note runs through many, if not most Oregon Pinot Blancs. It’s a positive marker, and this wine is a fine example. Winemaker Thibaud Mandet unhesitatingly calls this his favorite wine. There are lovely aromatics, a mouth-teasing mix of citrus and green apple fruit, and a wash of minerality on the finish. "
