Avennia "Oliane" Sauvignon Blanc, Yakima Valley WA 2019
VINTAGE : 2019
COUNTRY : USA
REGION/APPELLATION : Washington, Yakima Valley
VARIETALS : Sauvignon Blanc
Oliane is 100% Sauvignon Blanc, barrel fermented using native yeast and bottled unfined. Our intent for this wine is to clearly express the richness and complexity this noble grape is capable of in Washington.
“This wine opens with lively aromas of white grapefruit, passionfruit, sweet hay, pea vine, tarragon, and a whiff of struck flint. There’s an intensity to the palate, bringing lime and grapefruit, sweet spring herbs, and fresh mown hay notes, carried by a concentrated mid-palate with bright acidity. It’s showing perfectly now, and promises to age nicely over the next decade.” - Chris Peterson, Winemaker
