Appellation: Columbia Valley
Victor Palencia, one of the Northwests 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 thats brimming with lemon, fresh-cut celery, a faint whiff of tomcat and a dusting of minerality. Its capped by ripe yet not sweet lime. His wines are widely available in the Tri-Cities, particularly at Yoke's Fresh Market locations.
