    A delicious American white, the Elk Cove Willamette Valley Estate Pinot Blanc will brighten any gathering, whether it be a festive dinner or Sunday brunch. Where will you pour it?

    Wine Enthusiast: Designated Top 100 Wine of 2018, #5 Rank and Editors' Choice. "This sophisticated effort is highlighted by bright, polished fruit flavors of apple, melon and white peach. It's long and focused, fresh and immaculate, with no apparent new oak." Oct 2018

    Wine & Spirits: "A brisk Pinot Blanc, this leads with tart lemon notes and a pronounced whiff of minerals, as if chalk dust were rising from the glass. There’s marvelous tension between the wine’s green apple crispness and rounded texture, reigned in by fine acidity. Exciting stuff for something on the green side, like scallops with arugula pesto." Aug 2018

    Winery:  "Jumps from the glass with aromas of bright tangerine set off by slate, smooth river rock and a flash of honeysuckle. Ripe and mouth-watering, this wine is bursting with stone fruit and crisp Meyer lemon buffered by the creamy texture of meringue."
