Incredibly refined and elegant, our Kelly Washington Pinot Blanc shows a wonderful synergy between vibrancy of fruit, phenolic structure and texture. Seamlessly dry and lengthy, the wine shows off nicely the minimal intervention in winemaking practise, yet is also expressive and fleshy, with ample concentration.
