2017 J. Wilkes Santa Maria Valley Pinot Blanc

SKU #1402207 Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Ripe apple, nectarine and lime-peel aromas make for a very accessible nose on this bottling. There is compelling tension to the palate, where bright citrusy and yellow-apple flavors get a white pepper lift and ride on fresh acidity. It's a great white wine for many occasions. (MK) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

K&L Notes

This lovely Pinot Blanc has subtle melon aromas combined with fresh white peach and lemon zest. On the palate the wine is tangy with bright, citrus-driven acidity, stone fruits and a nice mineral presence. It finishes quite clean and is, in winemaker Wes Hagen's opinion, a great match for BBQ, spicy fried chicken, or white fish sashimi. Winemaker's notes: "Bright, mineral, nervey with nectarine skin, peach flesh, floral/saline notes. On the palate - round, ripe stone fruit on the attack, layered with stoney minerals in the mid-palate, finishing with refreshing structure and mouth-watering acidity."

I enjoyed the J. Wilkes Pinot Blanc during an outdoor dinner party with friends, and it was the perfect start to our evening. The wine is incredibly versatile and pairs well with an array of foods. It possesses a nice crisp, savory, saline character that gets your mouth watering, preparing you for the meal to come. But then evolves into a rounded, honeyed, stone fruit expression that carries you through your meal. Refreshing, and elegant, this will be one of my top wines for spending relaxing evenings outdoors this summer.
