Grape(s): Pinot Blanc
Localization: Willamette Valley, Oregon, USA
Tasting Notes: This is barrel fermented and left on the lees prior to bottling. Crisp green apple, lemon wafer and a hint of butter bring out well-rounded flavors that carry a hint of residual sugar. It's dry but not tart, and would be an excellent substitute for a Chardonnay.
