TASTING NOTES:
This Pinot Auxerrois is considered the finest clone of Pinot Blanc because of its naturally low yields and smaller berry size which increases the skin to juice ratio. A brilliant gold color, the wine offers up intense scents of apple and white peach blossoms complimented by a white pepper finish. This wine is round and slightly off-dry with juicy, fresh red apple fruit.
