Dry on the palate, medium body, with medium-high acidity but a round texture. Flavors of pineapple, sliced yellow apple, cooked pear, candied lemon rind, and pink apples.

    Sounds wonderful, I’m a fanatic about Pinot Blanc! Ghost Hill will be a new one for me soon. Cheers!

    I just bought a case. Everyone is loving the aromatics. This is well made and sets the benchmark for un-oaked ‘Pinot Noir Blanc’ (not to be confused with Pinot Blanc)!
