Palencia Winery 2016 Sauvignon Blanc

February 17, 2018 

Appellation: Columbia Valley

Victor Palencia, one of the Northwest’s magicians with aromatic white wines, follows up his 2016 Platinum-winning Sauvignon Blanc with this Double Platinum from the 2017 Platinum Judging. The proven formula of Frenchman Hills Vineyard and Hungarian oak puncheons makes for a bright, tart and perfect Sauv Blanc that’s brimming with lemon, fresh-cut celery, a faint whiff of tomcat and a dusting of minerality. It’s capped by ripe — yet not sweet — lime. His wines are widely available in the Tri-Cities, particularly at Yoke's Fresh Market locations.

Rating: Outstanding! by Wine Press Northwest. (12.1% alc.)

Price: $20

Production: 500 cases

Food pairings: Enjoy with barbecue-grilled prawns, grilled chicken, gyros, cod, halibut or artichokes.

Palencia will stage his grand opening in Kennewick for the public Saturday, March 3.
