Arnett Vineyard in Clarkston, Wash., and Umiker Vineyard in Lewiston, Idaho, come together for this aromatic blend that continues to features Pinot Gris (25%), Muscat (22%) and Gewurztraminer (17%) but there are also significant contributions of Chardonnay (19%) and Viognier (14%). There’s a tropical theme because of the three varieties of Muscat (Ottonel, Canelli and Orange) from the Umikers site at 1,200 feet elevation with lychee, rosewater, Circus Peanut candy and minerality. In years past, this wine has carried a significant amount of sweetness, but this vintage finishes out at 0.5% residual sugar, and the lingering burst of pink grapefruit acidity makes this an easy drinker.
