Ponzi Vineyards Pinot Blanc 2017 (90 VM)

“Extremely pale chartreuse. Mineral- and spice-inflected Meyer lemon and pear scents take on a hint of florality with air. Brisk and sharply focused, offering lemon pith, pear and honeysuckle flavors and a touch of fennel. In a lightweight, graceful style, finishing dry, tight and long, with a snap of minerality adding zesty cut.”

    Willamette Valley, Oregon

    Pinot blanc was planted at Aurora Vineyard in the early 1990s, taking advantage of an ideal portion of the 80-acre site. This versatile white wine is a wonderful alternative to Pinot gris. Beautiful floral aromas of jasmine and magnolia mingle with notes of lychee, lemongrass, beeswax and green tea mochi with a touch of cardamom. The textured mouth is reminiscent of shortbread and the freshness of rainwater and wet slate with bright, juicy acidity that encourages another sip.
