Northern California is the ideal growing region for crisp, flinty Sauvignon Blanc, and Bartlett pears have been an important part of the agricultural heritage of this region for well over a century. Obsidian’s Founding Winemaker Michael Terrien had the simple insight years ago that these two fruits grown in the same
place would be complementary.
Ten years ago, when we first had this thought, a spritzy low alcohol fruit wine may have struggled to find an audience, but today there is great energy and interest in a casual and refreshing drink just begging to join you on an outdoor adventure. And so the time has come for Obsidian Pear Blanc to debut beyond the doors of our tasting room.
Blended together in equal parts, Pear Blanc is the perfect union of creamy, lush perry aromas, flavors and texture balanced by the refreshing salinity, citrus peel and stone fruit character of sauvignon blanc. With just a touch of spritz to add
to the magic, and no residual sugar. A natural love story for the ages.
