Winemaker's Notes:

Pale straw. Ripe apple-melon fruit with nuances of hazelnut, spice and butter. Palate is crisp, clean and well-balanced with a lingering aftertaste. This wine pairs well with Chargrilled ahi with soy butter, planked halibut, chicken grilled over apple wood, and crab stuffed mushrooms.
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.
