2014 J. Wilkes Santa Maria Valley Pinot Blanc
2014 J. Wilkes Santa Maria Valley Pinot Blanc
Appearance: Light straw, brilliant clarity.
Aromatics: Fuji apple, lime zest, nectarine flesh, orange blossoms. Faint hint of saline minerality. Aromatics are bright, alluring, complex and primary. Summer in a glass. Enticing and seductive.

Palate: Bright, nervey with great balance,peach skin, nectarine flesh, white flower, minerality and broad mouth feel, solid  crispness, attack and cut(bright, mouth-cleansing acidity).

Food Pairing: This wine is bright, aromatic and delicious enough for cocktails around the pool on a warm day, structured enough for a cheese and charcuterie plate, and perfect for classic Alsatian cuisine: pan-fried frog's legs (cuisses de grenouilles) in parsley cream sauce. For the less adventurous, a dozen Morro Bay oysters, a white sauce pizza with shrimp and bacon, or grilled peach halves with burrata cheese. Speaks clearly of Santa Maria sun, wind, and fog.

Aging: No need to age this wine with so much deliciousness and youthful verve. But expect some honey, slate/mineral and hazelnut to emerge 3-7 years. May go longer in a proper cellar for those that prefer complexity and conversation to youthful beauty.
