By on May 4, 2014

Wilridge Winery 2012 Crawford Vineyard Pinot Grigio, Yakima Valley, $17

wilridge-winery-pinot-grigio-bottleSeattle attorney Paul Beveridge pays tribute to time spent in the Friuli region near the Adriatic Sea — his inspiration for this style of wine — by using the Italian term for this grape. Aromas feature dusty Granny Smith apple, lime, white pepper, anise, fresh hay and minerality. Flavors conjure up thoughts of peach and Asian pear along with continued undertones of anise and white pepper. The adroitly handled acidity makes this quite refreshing and should lend it to oysters, halibut, broasted chicken and Italian cheeses. This wine received a gold medal at the 2014 Capital Food and Wine Festival Wine Competition.
