Bright, citrusy aromas wrapped around notes of banana and orange marmalade. On the palate, what you smell is what you taste, complemented by a yin and yang of Riesling richness and beautifully balanced Chenin Blanc zest. Kiss of residual sugar on the palate, too. As good as any Columbia Valley Riesling project we’ve ever done.
Style: Light, Fruity
Flavors: Citrus, Nectarine
Lot 459 is the latest from the producer of our mega-popular Lot 359 (which was our #2 selling white wine of 2013 behind the Arroyo Seco Chards). Like 359, it’s a perfect example of how Washington continues to excite the marketplace with compelling wines that offer terrific values, and is sourced from 30 to 40-year-old vines in the Columbia Valley.
