- Dom Leon Boesch Pinot Blanc 2014 Product #30741 (In Stock)
We love Pinot Blanc, and this is a great example why. On the nose, you'll find subtle aromas of pear and fresh apple. On the palate, those apple flavors come right through (maybe a Honeycrisp?) without ever veering into apple cider territory. The texture hits a perfect note of richness while remaining crisp and fresh. Try it with richer poultry dishes or creamy seafood.
- 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
