Messenger Pinot Blanc 2019
Famed for its fog, the Mendocino area is known for its well-developed and balanced acid. This Pinot Blanc is no exception as layers of fruit and beautiful texture yield to clean, thirst quenching acid. A crowd pleaser and enjoyable on its own as much as with food this wine is a gem that once opened, can't be ignored.
Composition: 100% Pinot Blanc
Tasting Notes: Crisp, fresh, and vibrant- this Pinot Blanc opens with aromas of fresh white flowers, nectarines, white peaches, and a touch of mint. The body of the wine is actually rather textured and after a soft burst of acid, mouthwatering white peach, apricot, and a touch of lemon curd build invitingly until each subsequent sip.
Pairings: Seared tuna, swordfish ceviche, grilled oysters or lobster, poblano chicken enchiladas, and any assortment of stone fruits whether fresh, grilled, or baked.
