Craig Mitrakul has been making some of the best wines in North Central Washington for decades, but for other wineries. Now, the Cornell grad has his own brand in Cashmere, and his hard work continues to pay off with this white wine, which was chosen best of show at the 2017 Wenatchee Wine Competition. It’s a stunning example of this Spanish grape, with expressive aromas of fresh peaches, pear, lemon verbena, kiwi and even a hint of minerality and lime sorbet. The crisp acidity is harmoniously balanced with all the fruit.
