Dopff au Moulin 2010 Pinot Blanc
Dopff au Moulin have been crafting wines in Alsace since 1574, making them one of the world’s oldest family wineries. The new 2010 range, which also includes an impressive riesling and gewurztraminer, is bottled under screw caps, ensuring the wines remain vibrant. They are a revelation compared to previous vintages. This is an absolutely lovely wine and a very good alternative to sauvignon blanc and pinot gris. It is dry and minerally with ripe pear and fresh melon notes. Available at Dan Murphy's, Woolworths Liquor and BWS stores and an absolute bargain for $12.99.
