Telaya Wine Co. 2016 Grenache Blanc, Yakima Valley, $25
Earl & Carrie Sullivan continue to develop relationships with some of the top growers in the Pacific Northwest for their Boise-area winery, and Dick Boushey remains one of the leading viticulturists in Washington. His vineyard in the Yakima Valley has a well-earned reputation for Rhône Valley varieties, and Grenache Blanc isn’t easy to find or work with. It spent 10 months in neutral oak barrels, making for vibrant aromas of white peach, honeydew melon, orange blossom, furfural and an abundance of gooseberry. Those same white fleshy fruits come through on the lemony palate, which shows finesse and balance. This earned a gold medal at the 2017 Idaho Wine Competition, and suggested pairings include lemon chicken, lobster or oysters.
