A trio of Yakima Valley sites come together, predominantly the Roy family’s Oasis Vineyard north of Prosser, Wash., for this fumé-style Sauvignon Blanc that spent five months in neutral oak. Interestingly, it is the involvement of Viognier (5%) that’s more apparent in glass than the wood as navel orange joins the profile of Italian lime soda, gooseberry pie and a touch of tropical fruit. It’s a solid example of Sauvignon Blanc that saves its burst of acidity for the finish of lime juice and fresh-cut celery. Suggested pairings include goat cheese, oysters and delicate white fish.
