Au Bon Climat 2012 Hildegard White (Santa Maria Valley)

Jim Clendenen may be the only West Coast vintner making this blend of 50% Pinot Gris, 40% Pinot Blanc and 10% Aligoté, but more should copy. Aromas of musk melon, orange rose petals, crushed chalk and candied peaches lead into a palate powered by sea salt-laced nectarines, ripe red apples and honeydew, all tied together with proper acidity.
