Pinot Blanc is near and dear to the YVV family, we try not to play favorites, but, if we had a favorite white wine, Pinot Blanc would be it. Before it was commercially recognized we were growing it and learning how to make it the way we like. Dense aromatics of honeydew melon, toasted hazelnuts, and truffles lead into the mouthwatering yet balanced acidity that make this wine exceptionally food friendly. The finish is persistent; when revisited a complexity of aromas reveal notes of white flowers, pineapple, mango, and ripe, juicy pear.
"This wine has a compelling nose of stone fruits and floral accents, and on the palate, it is juicy and crisp, with delicious flavors of peach, melon, pineapple and nutty hints. Easy drinking but with a nice complexity and a lengthy finish. Very food friendly, this would work well with seafood to chicken, salads to soups. Or you could just sit outside and sip a glass on its own.” - Richard Auffrey, The Passionate Foodie
