Au Bon Climat Santa Barbara County Pinot Blanc Pinot Gris 2021

A wine of elegance and versatility. The Au Bon Climat 2021 Pinot Gris/Pinot Blanc is a delightful, dry white that is immensely drinkable. The Pinot Gris provides firm acidity, while the Pinot Blanc gives a hint of green apple/pear and broadens the palate. In the mouth, the wine is rich and textural from time spent on the lees in barrel. Blending these two varietals creates a more interesting wine. It is light and refreshing, making it a good choice for an aperitif. It has enough body and intensity to pair with a wide range of cuisines. The minerality and acidity make this a great wine for shellfish of any kind and delightful with roast chicken, turkey or pastas with a light béchamel sauce. Also great with Thai cuisine.
