North Carolina Wine TV Review
The Biltmore Zinfandel Blanc de Noir has some honey, cranberry and raisin on the nose. The cranberry flavor brings some tartness to the wine. This wine for the people is not too sweet, a great value and would be great for a deck party.
Availability: Directly from the Winery and select wine shops
Rating: according to the North Carolina Wine Ratings Scale
About Biltmore Zinfandel Blanc de Noir (from the winery):
Semi-sweet raspberry and citrus flavors with hints of melon round out this wine’s laid-back approach. The perfect partner for Asian and Italian dishes, as well as fresh fruit and desserts.
About Biltmore Estate (from the winery):
The most visited winery in the United States isn’t located in Napa Valley. It’s at Biltmore in the mountains of North Carolina, where approximately 1 million visitors stop by to sample award-winning estate wines each year. The first vineyards at Biltmore were established in 1971 in an area below Biltmore House. French-American hybrids were planted initially, with vinifera plantings following in a few years. Inspired after several years of experimenting, William A.V. Cecil, then president and owner of Biltmore, decided that a winery was the natural outcome of ongoing research and a logical extension of his grandfather’s intention that the estate be self-supporting.
