Limited Release Chasselas-Pinot Blanc

Limited Release Chasselas-Pinot Blanc Wine Details
Price: $15.99 per bottle

Description: True to style this wine is made for summer! Essence of clean, fresh and bright Okanagan fruit can be found on the palate. An edge of discernable sweetness combines with racy acidity to produce this simple but seductive wine. Try this classic summer wine with a tomato and bocconcini salad with fresh basil or perhaps pan-fried snapper with a corn, papaya and cilantro salsa.
