Greg Graziano fermented this Pinot Blanc
in French-oak barrels, a process that gives the
wine its dense, silky texture.
What You Need To Know
Winemaker Greg Graziano believes
that California’s cool Mendocino coast makes a perfect home for
any grape beginning with “Pinot.” So in addition to Pinot Noir,
Mendocino’s calling card variety, Graziano makes tiny amounts of
a handful of wines from that grape’s less-famous relatives,
including Pinot Meunier, Pinotage and Pinot Blanc, the basis for
this wine. The Pinot Blanc grape (known as Pinot Bianco in Italy)
yields full-bodied white wines that can range from creamy and soft
to crisp and zesty. This example combines a lush texture with
Fruity and bright, with
orange and apple notes.
