2018 J. Wilkes Pinot Blanc (Santa Maria Valley, CA)
Clear – Straw color, slight yellow hue
Fruit – Lemon zest and green melon rind (Honeydew Melon)
Non-Fruit Aromas – Hint of Earl Grey Tea and Bergamot. A limestone character with fresh salinity
Entry – Medium viscosity with an oily mouthfeel that is clean and crisp at the same time.
Mid palate – Normal acceleration as the mouthfeel grows slightly more viscous and the citrus peel/bergamot character and minerality kick in.
Finish – Long with a mouthwatering slightly sour acidity and stone minerality
Thai green curry with chicken, eggplant and basil.
