The 2021 Bells Up Winery Rhapsody Pinot Blanc wine from this small, family-owned winery is our second introduction of unique and flavorful wines from David and Sara Specter. Pinot Blanc is not a dominant varietal and if you haven't tried it, this is the one you need to get. Aged on lees for six months, this has a fuller body feel than many white Pinot grape varieties and the terroir of Willamette Valley is evident by the wet stone, crisp fruit flavors and dollops of soy sauce lurking in the background. There is just the right amount of baking spices mid palate and a memorable finish that includes a noticeable acidity and mineral notes. We love when you taste a wine and just smile from ear to ear, knowing that you've discovered a fun, memorable bottle. This wine is drinking very well right now and should for another 4-5 years.
Medium golden color and very fragrant.
We generally don't taste wines (when reviewing) with food. After we scribed our thoughts on paper we could just tell that this Pinot Blanc would be a great wine to compliment a snack. We tasted this with popcorn from Northern Neck Popcorn Bag and the pairing was a-MAZ-ing!
