Floral notes, tropical fruit and a hint of spice cascade off the nose of Ponzi Pinot Blanc ... this extremely aromatic wine is crafted to be luscious and full, with a bright finish.
In 1990, upon her return from studies in Burgundy, Winemaker Luisa Ponzi was determined to take advantage of the Willamette Valley's ideal climate for Pinot Blanc. The newest Ponzi vineyard site – Aurora – was the perfect match of soil and elevation for this special varietal, which is made in the Ponzi tradition of low yields and gentle handcrafting.
Ponzi Pinot Blanc is whole cluster pressed, fermented 50% stainless steel, 50% French oak, and bottled early to retain the beautiful, fresh fruit. It is a distinctive addition to any table or cellar.
