By on June 9, 2013

Washington wineBest Buy! Sauvignon Blanc is a bit of an underrated grape in Washington. Typically, it is not nearly as classically herbaceous as examples from Northern California or New Zealand, yet it often provides bright acidity and clean fruit flavors that pair well with any number of dishes, such as halibut with a caper sauce or linguine in a cream sauce. If you haven’t tried a Washington Sauv Blanc recently, here is a can’t-miss version from Precept Wine in Seattle – both in quality and price. It offers aromas of fresh lime, celery and grassiness, followed by refreshing flavors of lemon, orange and lime. It has terrific acidity that lifts the flavors all the way through.
