Island winemaker Chris Primus presents his latest version of one of the Puget Sound’s best patio and seafood wines, and he hasn’t lost a step. The Germanic cross of Gewürztraminer and Madeleine Angevine creates beautiful aromas of white peach, orange oil, lychee, kiwi and clove with hints of ginger and crushed seashells. It’s a clean, lean and bright drink of nectarine, kiwi and Asian pear with Mandarin orange acidity and more notes of ginger and minerality. It’s a quaffer that’s pleasantly dry at 0.8% residual sugar, and it’s ideal for mussels, oysters, clams and virtually anything from the Salish Sea.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 658 cases

Alcohol: 11.3%
