Strauss Pinot Blanc 2016 Product #32185 (In Stock)
Strauss Pinot Blanc 2016 Strauss Pinot Blanc 2016

Last year's 90 point review for the 2015 edition of this called it, "Subtle, understated but very good."  In 2016, the Strauss family kept the "very good" but bolted on "big, bold and very distinctive"!  From southern Austria, this is hand-harvested, destemmed, and sorted berry by berry to ensure only the finest grapes go into the press.  Fermented all in tank, it shows lovely ripeness and richness at just 12.2% alcohol.

The aromas and flavors of green apple, bosc pear, and Mirabelle plum have plenty of intensity and are supported by a touch of lime-like acidity and a light, salty, minerality.  The wine really glides across your palate smooth as silk before a nice pop of Granny Smith apple and lime make your mouth water and hand reach back for the glass again.  A fine sipper and great match for salads and seafood.

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Bianco Vial 2015 Product #31032 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Bianco Vial 2015 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Bianco Vial 2015

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

Skylark Pinot Blanc 2016 Product #31977 (In Stock)

The folks at Skylark have created Pinot Blanc magic in Mendocino County, inspired by the wines made from this grape in Alsace and Austria.

With beautiful aromas of Meyer lemon, fennel, and tangerine, the flavors here are just as refreshing. This wine has the kind of minerality you'd expect from a Pinot Blanc from Northern Italy, but with a nice pop of California ripeness. Drink this as a super sophisticated aperitif at your next dinner party, or with shellfish all summer long.

Harper Voit Pinot Blanc Sur Lie 2015 Product #31725 (In Stock)

Taking Pinot Blanc to a whole new level with 7 months aging on the lees in a fine, ripe, vintage. Dry and salty on the finish.

"This barrel-fermented wine drinks like a beautifully proportioned Chardonnay. It takes bright, intense fruit flavors of melon, yellow apples and green bananas, and puts a Burgundian spin on the mouthfeel with judicious acids and a touch of caramel. It's delicious, complex and should age nicely for another five to six years."Wine Enthusiast 93 points
