Stillwater Creek Vineyard,
Royal Slope,
Columbia Valley,
Washington

14% alcohol

Cork closure

350 cases produced

Bouquet:

I found the aromas in this wine quite intriguing. First, I smelled tart Granny smith apples and ripe bananas, and then vanilla bean combined with just a whiff of oak.

Palate:

Wow, the texture in this wine was incredible! It had a full, enveloping mouthfeel with a texture best described as “fat.” Fruit flavors of honeydew melons, papayas, and lemon zest evolved into honey stick with a long, ginger finish.

Food pairing suggestions:

Chicken caesar salad, air fryer pecan crusted trout, pan-seared duck breast.

SRP $21
