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.
