Pinot Blanc is a lesser know grape variety but is a member of the Pinot family.  The most well known and widely produced Pinot varieties include Pinot Grigio and Pinot Noir.   Pinot Blanc is produced in Alsace France, Northern Italy, New York Finger Lakes Region, Washington, and Oregon as well as Northern Michigan. It is a variety that produces lovely aromatics and has delicate levels of acid, which make it an excellent wine to pair with a wide variety of food. This blend is 75% Pinot Blanc and 25% Auxerrois. 

NOSE: Dry in style this Pinot Blanc has aromas of pear with hints of lime zest.

PALATE: On the palate you will find bright citrus notes. The medium body and perfect acidity on the finish make this wine ideal to pair with a variety of food.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Fresh, bright and crisp with subtle aromatics of pear and orange zest.
Vineyard Notes
This vintage is a combination of two vineyards and two grape varieties. It was planted with the intention of always field blended between 75% Pinot Blanc and 25% Auxerrois.
Production Notes
We pressed this fruit in a very gentle fashion to preserve the bright aromatics. This wine spent 3 months on heavier lees to give it more contact in an effort to produce a fuller palate.
Winemaker Notes
I enjoy producing Pinot Blanc in our cool climate. The program we have in place with Auxerrios excites me about watching the growth of our Pinot Blanc program as the vines continue to age.
Food Pairing Notes
This variety pairs well with light meats like roast chicken, salad with a citrusy dressing, mild cheeses, and seafood and pasta with acidic or creamy sauce, like shrimp with fresh pesto.
Other Notes
Field blended Pinot Blanc and Auxerrois to add darker depth to the acidic bones.

Great versatile wine! Smooth, not too acidic, strong hints of pear. Nice clean finish on the palate.
