Pinot Auxerrois

Murlo is a 40 Knots Winery Aficionado member.  We received this Pinot Auxerrois wine as part of the members package and is an excellent wine.

The Wine
Pinot Auxerrois (French Oak) 2018 – White wine
Small Batch

Our Tasting Notes
We found this medium body wine dry with a medium citrus (lemon/lime) hit on the palette and a floral note. Served chilled.  The wine would make a good compliment to a creamy pasta dish.

Winery Tasting Notes

Experience this rare find with fresh seasonal cuisine.  This beautiful wine is lightly oaked, medium body and a big hit mid palate.  Alsational style with pineapple, lemon, lime and pear.  May take on a Riesling character in time.  Rich and oily.
