Coastal Vineyards Estate Pinot Blanc 2012 is a varietal wine. Pinot Blanc is a genetic mutation or clone of Pinot Noir. Their estate Pinot Blanc is a wonderful, dry crisp white wine. The nose is filled with apple, lemon, lime, rose petals and honeysuckle. It had a lovely mineral quality to it as well. A refreshing, complex white. Lovely.

Great stuff!
