Washington state bubble baron Juergen Grieb devotes his Union Gap brut and extra brut programs to Chardonnay from Harold Pleasant’s standout vineyard for cool-climate varieties at the opposite end of the Yakima Valley. It’s a delightful, sophisticated and crisp sparkling wine that opens with aromas of Granny Smith apple, citron and fresh-baked bread. There’s fun frothiness to the mousse and delicious yeastiness, followed by Key lime, Golden Delicious apple and Asian pear. There’s not even a wisp of sweetness at 0.25% residual sugar as it finishes with a twist of lemon. This multipurpose food wine earned a silver medal at the 2015 Seattle Wine and Food Experience Wine Awards.
