Rio Vista Wines 2014 Sunset on the River, Columbia Valley, $20

By on October 16, 2015

Rio Vista Wines Sunset on the River labelNorth Central Washington vintner John Little creates this tasty and fun blush-style wine using Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer from his 3 acres of vines along the banks of the Columbia River. The pleasing nose of strawberry ice cream, vanilla and rose petals leads to flavors of strawberry candy, apricot and white peach. It’s slightly off-dry at 1.3% residual sugar, so serve chilled with a fruit and cheese plate or summer salad. This earned a bronze medal at the North Central Washington Wine Awards.
