Wine Review – Annie Amie 2008 Pinot Blanc, Willamette Valley, OR

Tonight I am drinking an Anne Amie 2008 Pinot Blanc,  from the Willamette Valley, Oregon.

My HQ office for my (real life) job is just outside of Portland, so I was lucky enough to visit Anne Amie in person recently. The hospitality team there was very friendly, knowledgeable, and  passionate – it’s a stop I highly recommend.

Pinot Blanc is a great summer wine that is very food friendly. It’s higher in acidity, and wine maker styles can vary, so expect some variation as you try various winery’s releases.

  • The color is a pale yellow straw, clear and brilliant.
  • Aromas of Asian pear, nectarine, light citrus, on the nose
  • In the mouth, a pleasant mix of pear, pineapple, citrus, none overwhelming, well balanced.
  • The Pinot Blanc was aged on the lees giving it a wonderful mouthfeel and slight creamy texture that combines well with the natural acidity for a pleasant, lingering finish. This combination will pair well with many foods, although its very enjoyable on its own as well.
  • The Pinot Blanc also spent time in French oak barrels, thankfully only 10% new, contributing to its subtle complexities, without overwhelming  or masking it.

A well made, versatile wine, at a reasonable price of $20.

91 Points, Highly Recommend.
