Winemaker's Notes:

Light straw color with aromas of grapefruit peel and lychee nut on the nose which carries through to the palate. Floral, clove and melon notes round out the finish.

Medium dry wine. This wine makes an excellent aperitif and a fine choice with ham, turkey, smoked fish and spicy foods.

My Notes:

About Columbia Winery:

Columbia Winery was the first premium winery in Washington and the first in the state to produce vineyard-designate wines. Columbia Winery was founded in 1962 by ten friends, six of whom were University of Washington professors. Originally known as Associated Vintners, the group was united in the belief that vines could survive the harsh Washington winters and that fine wine could be made in Washington state.

Having worked alongside founding winemaker and Master of Wine, David Lake, Kerry Norton now oversees the Columbia Winery winemaking, handcrafting Riesling, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah sourced from the Columbia and Yakima Valleys.
