Gamache Vintners 2012 Riesling, Columbia Valley, $18

By on September 22, 2013

gamache-vintners-riesling-bottleRed Mountain vintner Charlie Hoppes makes very little white wine for his own Fidelitas brand, but he turns out tasty Riesling for his longtime friends Bob and Roger Gamache. Its tantalizing aromas feature apricot, pink grapefruit, lime, butter rum candy and verbena. There’s some pleasing frontal sweetness and roundness to the flavors of passionfruit and yellow grapefruit, backed by a juicy nectarine that makes for a delicious finish.
