2006 Pinot Blanc, Anderson Valley, Hein Vineyard
This is Handley Cellars’ first Pinot Blanc, originating from Hein Vineyard, which is located at the northern end of Anderson Valley, very near Handley’s Estate Vineyard. With aromas of gardenia, peaches, and a touch of cinnamon, this wine starts soft on the front palate, moving into flavors of apples and creme brulée. Pinot Blanc is reminiscent of a crisp Chardonnay, and thus pairs well with some of the same foods. It shows a bit more spice than Chardonnay, so it will balance mildly spicy curries with scallops or prawns.
