Fish House 2015 Sauvignon Blanc, American, $12
Best Buy! Launched in 2004, the House Wine project has grown beyond 100,000 cases and a variety of closures – screwcap, boxed and the handy cans. While the listed American Viticultural Area goes down as “American,” this 2015 vintage was pulled from the Yakima Valley. Some years, Sauv Blanc from Idaho’s Snake River Valley has found its way into this program, but those days are unlikely to be seen again soon. Engaging aromas of lemon meringue pie, white peach and apple blossom turn into tart flavors of Granny Smith apple and lime pith, backed by minerality and a sour finish that’s proof of the essentially bone-dry angle of the residual sugar (0.2%.) Suggested pairings range from grilled chicken, roasted vegetables, scallops and white fish such as basa.
