Waitsburg Cellars 2014 Three White Blend Grenache Blanc-Marsanne-Picpoul, Columbia Valley, $17

By on June 10, 2016

waitsburg threeWaitsburg Cellars of Walla Walla, Wash., blended three rather exotic whites from Boushey Vineyard in the Yakima Valley into its 2014 “Three” blend of Grenache Blanc, Picpoul and Marsanne. The result is aromas of subtle spice, melon, apple, then flavors of honeydew melon, apples and a little tropical fruit element in its finish. Pair it with shellfish or chicken. This earned a gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.
