PINOT BLANC Pineapple, pear, banana, lemon, Gummy bear. Synonyms include: Pinot Bianco, Weissburgunder, Beli Pinot, Klevner (Alsace), Blanc Vrai (Champagne)  like Chardonnay it produces a similar medium- to full-bodied style of wine with good acidity, and responds well to oak maturation.

Faber & Partner - pretty cool art work all done in wine glasses: i'd trade out the gummy bears for something else though, like grapes maybe
