indian-creek-sauvignon-blanc-2013-bottleBest Buy! The Snake River Valley’s lofty elevation of 2,500 feet is conducive to growing crisp white wines because the cool nights keep the grape’s natural acidity from falling out. Mike McClure sourced this Sauvignon Blanc from Skyline Vineyard — the state’s largest planting — as well as Starlite Vineyard for this dry approach. Aromas of lemongrass, dried lime peel and yellow grapefruit expand on the palate, picking up flavors of gooseberry pie and Key lime with juicy and steely finish. Enjoy with grilled brats and springtime salads. This same wine earned a silver medal at last year’s Great Northwest Wine Competition, so it continues to hold lots of appeal.
