Buty Winery 2013 Sèmillon-Sauvignon-Muscadelle, Columbia Valley, $25

Buty Winery-2013-Semillon-Sauvignon-Muscadelle BottleThe influence of Lonesome Spring Ranch Muscadelle continues to check in around teens in terms of percentage of the blend. For the 2013 bottling, it stands at 16% as Sèmillon (62%) from old-vine Rosebud Ranch from the Wahluke Slope and cooler Boushey Vineyard remains well in front of Sauvignon Blanc (22%) off Lonesome Spring. The blend leads to inviting aromas of lemon custard, fresh-cut celery, sweet herbs, lemon zest and quinine. On the palate, the mouth feel is clean, round and rich with its theme of lemon curd as the Sèmillon stands out, and the delicious balance makes this an ideal pairing with steamed mussels or clam chowder.
