Elkton Oregon Umpqua Valley Southern Oregon Oregon
Bouquet and palate:
This easy-drinking cuvée blend contains Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Pinot gris and Sauvignon blanc, all grown in the postage stamp-sized AVA of Elkton Oregon. Sweet starfruit and honeydew melon ease into notes of tart lemons and jasmine flowers, culminating in a spicy white ginger finish. This wine is a great summer sipper but also wonderful for those longing for warm, sunny days.
Food pairing suggestions:
Fresh grilled Dungeness crab, tom kha soup, spicy vegetable tamales.
