This second-generation winegrowing family in the Boise suburbs continues to reflect the maturation of the Idaho wine industry in this serious, bone-dry example of Sauvignon Blanc. Mike McClure’s winemaking presents gooseberry-laden aromas that include jasmine, Granny Smith apple, celery leaf and a faint whiff of tomcat. It’s compelling with its style, flashing lime juice, green apple and starfruit, offering pleasing weight and a slaty and savory finish. It first revealed itself in the spring at the 2023 Cascadia International Wine Competition where it earned a double gold medal before being voted best of class. Serve with oysters on the half shell, scallops or shrimp.
