Winemaker's Notes:

Our 1997 Pinot Blanc literally explodes with aromas of honeysuckle, citrus blossom, orange and peach. The oak complexities, from barrel fermentation and nine months of aging in French oak, are well integrated and balanced, leading to a subtle aroma of sandlewood and spice in the finish. On the palate the wine confirms its aromatics. Perfumed honey and cream, orange and an interesting lemon and sandalwood note fill out the almost viscous fruit flavors, complemented by subtle toasty oak.
