Most $50 white wines wish they could taste this good! In only his second vintage, Napa Valley icon Robert Foley has
raised the bar sending a clear message to white wine producers.
Known for his highly sought after reds under his namesake winery in Napa Valley, Foley is also known for producing California Cab favorites such as Hourglass, Pride and Switchback Ridge. Now he is using his craft to produce a delicious alternative to Chardonnay in his 2007 Pinot Blanc - a wine that will not stay at this price point for long given its quality and value.
Pinot Blanc is a white varietal derivative of the Pinot Noir grape and most common in Alsace, France. Foley's Pinot Blanc is a dry white that is incredibly
versatile and wonderfully balanced.
Bordering on flavor profiles of an elegant white Burgundy, this versatile white shows wonderful peach and gardenia blossom notes in the bouquet, a broad and fresh mouthfeel and a lingering finish. Boasting rich scents of nectar, pear and a bit of almond, this delicious white has a clean, firm profile and exquisite acidity. The wine was vinified entirely in stainless steel to preserve the freshness of fruit; no oak barrels were used to mask the flavors.
Foley's Pinot Blanc is a perfect accompaniment to fish, shellfish, poultry, pasta or simply by itself! Enjoy now as a refreshing summer white or throughout the year as a delightful cooler weather white with body and nuance. Enjoy!
