Cedergreen Cellars 2015 Old Vine Chenin Blanc, Columbia Valley, $19

By on November 13, 2017

Kevin and Julie Cedergreen deepen their long-term devotion to the Loire Valley and Chenin Blanc with this production from historic Solstice Vineyard near the Yakima Valley town of Prosser, Wash. Barrel fermentation and partial malolactic fermentation leads to aromas of caramel and vanilla with hints of a sugared almond cookie. It’s full-bodied on the entry of crème brûlée before the zippy transition to pineapple, lemon and lime zest. Suggested pairings include shrimp in a cream sauce and mussels in coconut milk sauce. These Kirkland vintners have earned placement at wine shops, restaurants and grocers with wine stewards such as PCC, QFC, Central Market and Whole Foods.
