Best Buy! Camano Island winemaker Carl Engebreth sources this charming example of Gewürz from Tulip Valley’s estate vineyard across the Cascades near Sunnyside, Wash. The Salmon Safe site proves the fruit for a beautifully texture experience that’s classic with orange blossom, lychee, melon and pink grapefruit, a structure sparked by gorgeous acidity to balance the 6% residual sugar — and resulting in the winery’s first career Platinum. Award: Bellingham Northwest (gold).
