Owner Mike Andrews grows a lot of Cabernet Sauvignon at his 1,000-plus acres of vineyard in Washington’s Horse Heaven Hills. He also loves to experiment with other varieties, especially Rhône and Spanish grapes. This white Rhône variety is just starting to catch on with winemakers and consumers around the state and is making it into blends as well as a stand-alone wine. This example opens with luscious aromas of fresh-cut Honeycrisp apple, Bartlett pear and apricot. On the palate, it exhibits flavors of fresh-cut pineapple, pear and lemon custard in the finish. It is left just off-dry at 1.5% residual sugar.
