Martinez & Martinez Winery 2015 Tudor Hills Vineyard Viognier, Yakima Valley, $16
Some of Washington’s oldest vineyards serve as neighbors for Mark and Tom Tudor’s vines near Grandview, and while they sell to some of the state’s largest wineries, here they work Prosser winemaker Andrew Martinez. The nose of lemon meringue pie, nectarine and spearmint include lamb’s wool and lanolin. On the palate, it takes a tropical turn with Mandarin orange and honeydew melon, backed by sweet lemon flavors that make this quite a quaffer. Enjoy with turkey breast, Tacos Camarones or Pork Pozole.
