Very few blanc takes on Pinot Noir attain the richness and distinction of this coppery-colored wine. Styled as a “Blanc de Noir minus the bubbles,” it falls more into the rosé category in terms of its mix of light peach, pear and papaya flavors. By any name it's exceptional, all stainless-steel fermented and drinking like a dream.
