David Shaw

Pale yellow white in color. Floral, baby carrot, tropical fruit, and cream soda/orange soda notes in nose. Pineapple and lemon notes in mouth, slight veg (mustard greens?), some orange and tangerine on finish. Good neutral cleansing acid, dry, some moderate weight astringency on tongue in finish. A lot going on, suitable food wine but works fine for easy drinking before dinner as well

With so many young wines, it’s all about the fruit or acidity. Not with this vintage. This is the complete package. A great compliment to the grilled brazino at Shaker + Spear in Seattle.

Their first vintage since 2013! Single vineyard Viognier. The vineyard has had some frost trouble in the recent past leading them to withhold production.

It has to be high up on the shortlist of great white wines from Walla Walla; a benchmark for Viognier in the Valley.
