Winemaker's Notes

Pinot Blanc, the white grape cousin of Pinot Noir, finds its ultimate expression at the hands of the Mirassou Family in this limited Single Vineyard bottling. The fruit was night-harvested and field-pressed at Mirassou's renowned Mission Vineyard in the heart of Monterey County's cool climate "Pinot Belt."

Complex aromas and flavors of pineapple, pear, and apple are framed againist a background of toasty oak, clove, butterscotch, and vanilla. And exciting alternative to Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc makes a wonderful accompaniment to a wide variety of seafood and poultry dishes. At the beautiful family winery in Silicon Valley, Mirassou Chef de Cuisine David Page pairs this rare wine with his signature Fresh Maine Lobster Ravioli with Sea Scallops, Sweet Corn, and Lobster Butter.

Alcohol: 13.5% by volume
