Winemaker's Notes:

Tropical notes in the nose express some melon, star fruit and citrus notes like lemon zest come to mind. On the palate the wine has great balance. You can pick up mild passion fruit and minerality up front then moving toward a dryer finish where the citrus fruit shines through again.

Pairs nicely with fish and baked chicken; the acidity can also hold up to a nice spicy dish, maybe some spicy Thai soup.

About StoneCap:

StoneCap wines are handcrafted entirely from estate grown grapes from the renowned Goose Ridge Estate Vineyard in Washington's Columbia Valley. This expansive and highly regarded vineyard allows the Monson Family to produce stunning quality wines that are sensibly priced.

The Monson family has been farming the Columbia Valley for over four decades and developed Goose Ridge Vineyard in 1999 under the guidance of Dr. Walter Clore, the "father" of the Washington wine industry. The Monsons, along with veteran winemaker Kendall Mix, are dedicated to limited production, handcrafted wine and meticulous vineyard practices.
