Rancher/grower Mike Andrews brought this Spanish white variety to life in Washington, and he’s now earned five Platinum awards for the Albariño produced at his winery in Prosser. It’s the second straight year that his winemaker, Justin Michaud, picked up a Platinum for his concrete-fermented approach, which yields a bright and crisp wine filled with lemon verbena and lime sorbet notes. Award: Denver International (gold).
