J. Wilkes Pinot Blanc 2015

SKU 818013011063


Appearance: Light straw color with brilliant clarity. Aroma: Bright, mineral, nervey with nectarine skin, peach flesh, floral / saline. Mouth Feel: Round, ripe stone fruit on the attack, layered with stoney minerals in the mid-palate, finishing with refreshing structure and mouth-watering acidity. Food Pairing: Smoked BBQ, spicy fried chicken sandwich, potato chips or savory (buttered?) popcorn, it's impossible to taste this wine and not think of white sashimi fish or cold-water oysters.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a very accessible white wine for those seeking a reliable alternative that's both bright and flavorful. Aromas of coconut, poached pear, chamomile and white flowers show on the broadly painted nose, while the palate is clean and crisp with apple, zippy acidity and a chalky minerality.
