Winemaker Notes - Sourced from old vine plantings at Snipes and Willard vineyards in the Yakima Valley and the more northern, cooler Evergreen Vineyard. Light straw yellow in color, the nose opens to fresh Granny Smith apple, nectarine, and honey hinted with vanillin and cardamom. The palate is crisp and bright up front, with honey spice and nectarine fruit followed by a clean, lovely mineral finish. The wine will develop more roundness and richness as the acid integrates, but I find it refreshing and delicious now. A very versatile style suitable for a wide variety of occasions.
