Sauvignon Blanc, dominant, with small amounts of Chardonnay and Marsanne. A blended white with Sauvignon Blanc dominating over 75% of the wine, this was one of the original malic-acid friendly white wines released from Washington State. Rounding out the blend is a touch of chardonnay accompanied by just a pinch of Marsanne. Beautifully structured with wonderful Sauvignon Blanc fruit character, the mouth feel has a delicate balance of acid angularity and defined herbal sophistication.
Light straw color. Lively aromas of lemon peel, lemongrass, fresh warm pineapple and shortbread, with just a touch of sweet almond pastry. Refreshing acidity dances on the tongue with a hint of green apple flavor, which leads you into a pleasantly creamy lemon custard finish. This wine combines the more interesting aromatics and acidity of Sauvignon Blanc and cooler climate unoaked Chardonnay with the more inviting mouthfeel of a fuller bodied, warmer site Chardonnay.
For optimum fruit flavors and aromas, drink now. The higher acid in this wine should keep it drinking well for several more years.
Blend: 76% Sauvignon Blanc, 23% Chardonnay, 1% Marsanne
