Underripe banana, white peach, and sage vanilla notes, interesting.

Ok ok, I know - "how good could a white wine really be?!" Well rarely do I give a white wine this high a score, and definitely not a Pinot Bianco of all things, but THIS bottle hit ALL of the right chords for me. Beginning with a lovely nose of Meyer lemon, honeysuckle, ripe apples and peach, the palate is where it really wows. It has a vibrancy unlike many whites I've had recently. Zingy, refreshing, and robust all at the same time. This is a wine that wakes your palate up instead of putting it to sleep. At this price point, go find yourself a case!

Thanks @Kyle Groombridge for the recommendation. This was crisp and lush at the same time. Lemony, orange blossoms, minerally, as it warmed up more peach came to the surface. I also picked up a little banana as the wine warmed, maybe it's the label playing games with me.
