Wonderfully vibrant and aromatic, with notes of lemongrass, passion fruit and a hint of honeysuckle. Flavors of mango, fresh herbs and white peach, come together seamlessly across a textured palate and lengthy finish.
The 2020 vintage will be remembered for warm summer temperatures and a cool fall that extended hangtime to produce concentrated wines with balanced acidity. Bud break occurred in mid-April. The weather was moderate throughout the spring before cooling significantly in early June. Warm weather returned in July to allow the vines to catch up to a “normal” season, then temperatures climbed in August. Just as the winery was preparing for an early start to harvest, conditions cooled in early September before returning to the Columbia Valley’s typical pattern of warm fall days and cool nights mid-month. The weather shift provided for added hangtime, allowing vines to fully ripen a vintage marked by low yields.
92 Points Wine Spectator – “A lovely white, delicate yet vibrant, with an array of lemongrass, lime and stony mineral flavors that finish on a vivid note. Drink now. 816 cases made.”
91 Points Wine Enthusiast – “The aromas are quiet, with notes of herb and citrus. Plentiful tropical fruit and citrus flavors follow, while remaining deft. It lingers on the finish.”
