Wilridge Winery 2015 Artz Vineyard Sèmillon, Red Mountain, $18

By on July 8, 2018

While he focuses much of his attention on his certified Biodynamic vineayrd, the first in Washington state, Naches Heights producer Paul Beveridge maintained his long-term relationship with the late Fred Artz. In fact, Artz passed away about nine months before this lot of Sèmillon was harvested. Alluring aromas of lemon biscuit, butterscotch and vanilla lead into brisk lemony flavors that carry a complex touch of viscosity on the midpalate. Mango, pineapples and crab apple tartness. There’s a slice of Asian pear in the finish, which bodes quite well with seafood.
