Winemaker's Notes:

The white wines of 2007 reflect the vintage perfectly. Crisp, bright fruit aromatics and flavors with just enough ripe fruit to engage the palate. Ideally suited to spring and summer cuisine, these wines are to be savored. The 2007 Pinot Blanc is produced from Ponzi LIVE Certified Sustainable Aurora Vineyard in the Chehalem Mountains and Thistle Vineyard in the Dundee Hills.

Floral notes of honeysuckle and magnolia, powdered sugar and tangerine. The mouth is focused with flavors or crisp green apple, honeydew melon with a bright finish of lingering citrus notes.
