Au Bon Climat 2019 Pinot Gris/Pinot Blanc, Santa Barbara County
The Au Bon Climat 2019 Pinot Gris 75%/Pinot Blanc 25% is a versatile wine. It is light and refreshing making a good choice for an aperitif. It has enough body and intensity to go with food as well. The minerality and acidity make this a great wine for shellfish of any kind but it is also delightful with roast chicken, turkey or pastas with a light béchamel sauce. The aromas are salty, mineral with a lemon-lime note. In the mouth the wine is rich and textural, from the time spent on lees in the barrel. Au Bon Climat makes a longer barrel aged version of this wine called Hildegard which is Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Aligoté, with more oak influence and more barrel and bottle age. If you like our Pinot Gris/Pinot Blanc blends, on a special occasion, try our Hildegard.
