Bainbridge Vineyards 2013 Madeleine Angevine, Puget Sound, $18

By on June 2, 2016

bainbridge mad angeMadeleine Angevine – known as Mad Ang – is a rare wine to run across. The grape is from France’s Loire Valley and is grown in cool climates, which makes it perfect for Washington’s Puget Sound American Viticultural Area. This wine is made on Bainbridge Island, a 30-minute ferry ride from downtown Seattle. Aromas of fresh herbs and Asian pear give way to flavors of crisp orchard fruit. It’s a dry wine with bright, crisp acidity, making this a perfect wine to pair with oysters, scallops and other shellfish. This earned a gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.
