"This wine is two-thirds Evergreen and one-third RAF vineyards, both in the Ancient Lakes appellation and all fermented and aged in stainless steel. It’s spot on for the variety, with notes of whole Granny Smith apple and green melon. The palate redolent with sleek fresh apple and pear flavors that power through the finish. It’s a standout at this price.”

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
There’s Pinot Grigio and then there’s depth. This wine has it in spades. From the aroma to the palate. Lilac, tangerine, alpine strawberry, golden straw, and Italian melon. With density to spare. Minerally, long and lingering.
Vineyard Notes
Evergreen Vineyard (67%): Planted in 1998 by Jerry Milbrandt, the vineyard lies along a stretch of steep cliffs above the Columbia River, in the Ancient Lakes. A cooler site due to river influence, the soils are composed of fragmented basalt, gravel silt, and caliche deposited during ice age floods. As with all of Milbrandt’s vineyards, Evergreen is farmed using sustainable practices. This site produces fruit with sublime mineral character and great acidity, a balance that winemakers adore. RAF Vineyard (33%): Located in the Ancient Lakes AVA near the town of Quincy, RAF Vineyard is situated on one of the land’s many coulees (a canyon formed by the draining of the Missoula flood waters). Thin limestone soils within an elevation above 1200 feet provide RAF the classic terroir of the Ancient lakes AVA that have helped de ne the style of white grapes grown in the region.
Production Notes
Yeast: native / 100% whole cluster pressed / Stainless steel fermentation / No malolactic fermentation / 6 months aged on lees in tank
Winemaker Notes
The 2015 Harvest in Washington State started with an early spring bud break and continued into a warm summer. Although it started early and was a very warm year, the fall turned out to be long and temperate, which gave great ripening to our fruit, bright acid, low alcohol and beautiful complexity.
