About the wine
Pause for a moment to admire the yellow glow of Bianco Toscana 'Erastos' with its straw-yellow hue and subtle gold reflections that hold all the allure of a late summer romance, but without the heartbreak. Heavily perfumed with scents of yellow and tropical fruits, this vintage has a dry but soft minerality that's smooth and embracing on the palate. This wine sparkles alongside cheese, seafood, and chicken dishes. Try it with corn chowder, shrimp and creamy grits, or pork sauteed with pears and shallots.
Blend: Chardonnay (add body, apples and pears) , Sauvignon Blanc (adds racy, lemon-lime freshness), Viognier (adds exotics aromatics)
