This somewhat disjointed, but ultimately interesting, Pinot Blanc will pair well with a ride range of foods. The color is a very pale straw. A shy nose has hints of tropical fruits and melon. It is more forward on the palate, with melon and guava backed by lemon pith. The finish lingers a surprisingly long time. Drink with roast chicken. Recommended. 89 points. DBH
