Mercer Estates 2017 Georgetown White Blend, Horse Heaven Hills $18

By on July 9, 2019

The historic Mercer family built in some flexibility in the future with this proprietary white blend they named for their young tasting room in Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood, but Sauvignon Blanc (80 percent) dominates winemaker Jeremy Santo’s delicious blend with Viognier (20 percent). True to its main component, it has honeysuckle and lime notes in its nose, then gooseberry and lime flavors, finishing with minerality. It’s a bright and versatile wine that screams for oysters on the half shell, scallops, crab cakes, clams and summertime salads.
