2003 PINOT BLANC Wine Details
Price: $15.00 per bottle

Description: 750 cases produced. From vines planted at Bethel Heights in 1992, certified sustainably grown, our Pinot blanc is whole cluster pressed and cold fermented in stainless steel without malolactic fermentation to emphasize the fruit character of this rather delicate grape. Almost dry with 0.4% residual sugar, it has tropical overtones with a citus zest and creaminess on the palate. An excellent brunch, luncheon or appetizer wine. "Floral scented, broad, rich, and plush. This fine value reveals honeyed mineral flavors typically found in a Pint Gris, not a Pinot Blanc." (87) The Wine Advocate
