Winemaker's Notes

Brilliant straw-yellow color with a green shimmer. Very fine, fruity (apples, peaches), uplifted varietal aroma combined with very well integrated oak spice on the nose. Clean, elegant, grapey flavor, medium-bodied with a round and fresh mouth-watering finish. When cellared well, this wine may be kept for 3 to 5 years.

Critical Acclaim

"Shows serious intensity of sliced apple and pear, with plenty of mineral and floral undertones. Full-bodied, offering a solid core of fruit and a bright, palate-cleansing finish. The mineral element is lovely. Drink now. 1,610 cases made."
90 Points

"The 2008 Pinot Bianco Haberle is elegant and refined in its intricately woven layers of perfumed fruit. This mid-weight, crisp white offers plenty of balance and harmony in an understated style. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2011. "

Learn About Pinot Blanc

Pinot Blanc(pee-no blahnk) Pretty and Simple A mutation of the Pinot family, Pinot Blanc was once commonly mistaken for Chardonnay - it looks quite similar on the vine. But true Pinot Blanc lacks most Chardonnay characteristics. The grape is most at home in Alsace, where it is used both in blends as well as a sole varietal. It's also found in Italy...
