(2017) This Pinot Blanc from Friuli, north of Venice and close to the Slovenian border, is fermented in large Slavonian oak casks. It has a certain richness on the nose, cream, ripe, sweet apple and a light hint of spices. In the mouth it has texture and richness too, though the fruit is juicy and racy, a touch tropical, but finishing with apple acidity.
(2016) One of the most attractively packaged wines I have seen for some time, this is one of a pair of delightful northern Italian whites in Wine Rack, its partner Sauvignon the same price and really just as good. This is a Friuli wine made from the grape once known as Tocai Friulano, that term now outlawed following Hungarian intervention, and so now simply Friulano (aka Sauvignonasse). It shimmers with life, the creamy but crisp apple nose showing touches of floral character and almond creamy/nuttiness, but clean as a whistle. On the palate it is quite full and rich in texture, but has beautifully limpid fruit clarity, great freshness, and a long, elegant and tapering finish. Watch the video for more information and food-matching ideas.
