Georg Albrecht Schneider, Blanc de Noir Trocken, Rheinhessen, Germany 2018 100% Pinot Noir
STONEFRUIT & QUINCE, GENTLE FLINT, FOREST BLOSSOMS While white Pinot Noir might not be foremost on the radar for most of us, but the grape does have a wealth of experienced being made into non-red wines. In fact, France’s Champagne pioneered this technique even before exploring sparkling wine! This still rendition from the always-awesome Albrecht Schneider brings together piquant orchard-ish notes with a delicately floral perfume in a round yet fresh, elegant package that’s memorable, distinctive, and delicious. Serving Suggestion: Pork chops w/ baked apples & boiled potatoes w/ dill. Savory beet salad w/ citrus, chèvre, & sherry vinaigrette.
