REGION: Dufault Vineyard, Yakima Valley, Washington, U.S.A.
From Dufault Vineyard in the lower Yakima Valley of Washington state, this wine comes out of sandy-loam soil that runs down an extremely long south slope, ending in a drop to the Yakima river that allows for perfect air drainage. Hot, late-season sunshine and cool, breezy nights combine to make balanced, flavourful grapes.
WINE: Riesling gives boldly classic apple and stone fruit aromas, while Chenin Blanc provides more subtle melon and honey notes. On the palate it shows apricot, peach, green apple, quince and honey, with zesty acidity offset by a creamy mouthfeel and perfectly balanced richness. An excellent food wine, it matches well with grilled chicken, pork, and seafood, but its also an excellent sipper on its own, juicy, thirst-quenching and delicious.
AGING: Barely off-dry, this wine will be tempting to drink right on bottling day, but will show surprising flavour development over the course of a year, and will hold for two more years in a good cellar.
SWEETNESS: Off Dry BODY: Medium ALCOHOL: 12%*
