When Aurora Vineyard was planted in 1991, a portion of the site was planted to true Pinot blanc. Finding the varietal does so well in the cool Willamette Valley, the winery has produced a small amount ever since.
"Guava, passionfruit, pineapple and star jasmine, laced with white licorice and honeysuckle, give this nose tropical and floral notes. The mouth shows quince, lemon curd and ripe nectarine finishing broad and supple with a touch of slate minerality and fresh acidity." –Winemaker Luisa Ponzi
