Cathedral Ridge, Necessity White 2017, Columbia Valley, Washington
Tasting Note: Who knew (outside Alsace) a pinot gris and dry-riesling mix could taste so good?
Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has a nose of peach stone fruit, quince, pear and green apple.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied white blend delivers fruit flavors suggested on the nose with bright acidity and oomph.
Bottle Note: Thomas Jefferson once said, “Good wine is a necessity of life” and we couldn’t agree with him more! This wine is an elegant blend of our premier white varietals demonstrating the nuance and diversity of the Columbia Gorge wine growing region. Subtly complex and layered with a bouquet of gardenia, honeysuckle and lychee fruit that leads into a palate of creamy orchard fruit and a smooth, lingering finish. Cases produced 400.
