Clear pale yellow with a slight greenish shimmer. On the nose this classic Pinot Bianco scores with crisp notes of apple and pear mingling with aromas of raspberry and lime, plus a touch of chamomile and lemon grass to round off the composition. Body and balance sum up the wine, which intrigues the palate with the fruit of the pear and quince aromas combined with a salty minerality. The wine tickles the tongue and goes on to deliver a persistent aftertaste. A good companion with hors d’oeuvres such as salmon and tuna carpaccio.
An excellent dry pinot blanc that marries invigorating freshness with a fascinating snow-pea and fine green-bean character. You barely feel them directly, but a touch of positive tannin really helps to harmonize this at the very straight and crisp finish.
