Vintages Wine Picks June 12, 2010


White Wine

Vineland Estates Winery Pinot Blanc 2007, V.Q.A., Twenty Mile Bench, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada: Vintages Wine Panel: The 2007 growing season was long, warm and ideally dry. As a result, relatively neutral but full-bodied wines, such as Pinot Blanc, benefited. This version is filled with apple, pear and green plum aromas. Dry and quite fruity. My note: Pleasant mild melon and white peach notes. No heavy oak. Refreshing aperitif; ideal for those who like Pinot Grigio. Pair with: grilled rainbow trout, grilled free-range whole chicken. 164467 11% D 750 mL  $18.95 Score: 87/100. June 12, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
