Lopez Island Vineyard 2015 Estate Grown Organic Madeleine Angevine, Puget Sound, $25

By on February 25, 2017

Brent Charnley established his vineyards on Lopez Island in 1987, and his work with Madeleine Angevine serves as a stunning example of terroir and maritime climate. The record warmth of the 2015 vintage allowed him to create floral aromas of jasmine and lychee with apricot and Mandarin orange. Delicious flavors of tangelo and apricot nectar include a nibble of skin tannin that leads out with a long finish of Mandarin orange. While the fruit is ripe, the finish is far from sweet at a mere 0.3% residual sugar, and it charts “dry” on the International Riesling Foundation Taste Profile.
