Teutonic Pig & Swords White Blend 2019 750ml
This Willamette Valley white wine is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir, 35% Muller Thurgau and 5% Chasselas. It's ever-so-slightly pink in color with beautiful aromatics from the Muller and Chassealas- candied fruit, lemon/lime zest, and bright citrus notes. Then, coming from the Pinot Noir, you get earthiness and a funky complexity that plays beautifully with the other side. Basically this wine gives you the best of both worlds and only 10.72% Alcohol by volume - easy to enjoy.
