- Il Cavaliere Pinot Bianco Friuli 2015 Product #31617 (In Stock)
Crisp Pinot Bianco (aka Pinot Blanc) gets a touch of extra richness from the sunny, warm, Friuli growing region and the excellent 2015 vintage. Fresh green apple and tangy pineapple fruit show in the aromas with a fleshy peach note emerging on the palate. With a crisp, clean, lightly pineappley finish, it's a fine value to drink for refreshment or with light seafood dishes.
- Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Bianco Vial 2015 Product #31032 (In Stock)
Not sure what's in the water these days at this excellent co-op in the Alto Adige, but we know what's in the bottle - a LOT of quality for the money. This is a stunning Pinot Blanc, bursting with crisp green and yellow fruit with juicy acids and a firm, focused, mineral finish. More so even than its appealing, subtle, refreshing aromas and flavors, the texture and balance here is what is really impressive. Occupying that perfect middle ground between a light quaffer like Muscadet and a more serious, richer oaked Chardonnay, this is perhaps the ultimate wine to pair with any crab dish, but impossible to resist on its own.
"Kellerei Kaltern (Caldaro) does an excellent job with Pinot Bianco. This excellent value wine opens to bright fruit flavors and great mineral definition. The 2015 Alto Adige Pinot Bianco Vial is executed in stainless steel, although 10% of the wine sees aging in large oak casks. The wine is tonic and bright with an impressive charge of fresh fruit and white peach." Wine Advocate 91 points
