Estate Bottled Hildegard White Blend 2015

Hildegard was an 8th Century queen where legend has it she grew weary of drunken knights spilling red wine all over her place, so she had servants replant some of the vineyards to white grapes. A blend of a blend of Pinot Gris (50%), Pinot Blanc (40%) and Aligoté (10%), aged for 2 years in French oak, 100% new (long for a white). Pleasant aromas of fruit, spice and cedar. On the palate slight peach and citrus notes, well integrated with oak and spice. Lingering finish ending with nutty spice character. This white was something special! Tasting Sample! — 9 days ago

From a Naked Wines “take a chance” shipment. Really good Alsatian style Pfaltz Pinot Blanc. Aromas of slate, petrol and lemon. Flavors of pears, apples and a hint of lemon. Bracing acidity. Excellent! — 12 days ago

Willamette Valley Pinot Blanc

This is all the best things you want in a summer wine. Not rosé, not Pinot, but a really interesting amalgamation. — 9 hours ago

Roses de Jeanne Presle Blanc de Noirs Champagne 2011

Powerful but not overpowering. Layers of apples, apricot and some sweeter notes of honey as well. Good acidity and a long finish. Opened the bottle and enjoyed throughout our lunch. Paired it with the the fish dishes to start and even the two tomato sauce based pastas. Stands up fine to the bigger dishes. — 13 days ago

Roses de Jeanne La Bolorée Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

Disgorgement date April 2016. Like drinking stars... bright, light, ethereal... imagine grand cru burgundy with the tiniest pinprick bubbles gushing flavors of ripe pear and green apple... a true bargain if you can find it...absolute elegance and weightless brilliance. — 22 days ago

Willamette Valley Pinot Blanc 2011

Very nice all round white. Nice fruit but semi dry with a touch of minerality. Great alternative to Pinot Gris. — 5 days ago

Cameron Winery

Giuliano Friulano Blend 2017

An amazing white blend from Cameron Winery. Fruilano, Auxerois, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, and Moscato. Dundee Hills. Small batch production but worth seeking out. Honeysuckle on the nose. Fruit, citrus, smooth and supple with notes of honey. Delish. — 10 days ago
