Cellardoor Winery 2019 Buoy White, American $18

By on January 12, 2022

A year ago, Maine winemaker Aaron Peet reached into Washington state vineyards to produce a Platinum for his Chenin Blanc program. This fall, he parlayed a Chenin Blanc/Sèmillon (44%) from Yakima Valley fruit into a Double Platinum. It’s filled with tropical and stone fruit, bright and balanced with a crisp finish that’s wowed judging panels from January through October. Suggested pairings include prosciutto-wrapped melon, bacon-wrapped scallops and oysters on the half shell. Awards: San Francisco Chronicle (gold), Cascadia International (best of class, double gold).

Rating: Double Platinum, 97 points

Production: 917 cases

Alcohol: 12.5%
