Waitsburg Cellars 2014 Three White Blend

Waitsburg Cellars 2014 Three White Blend
Waitsburg Cellars 2014 Three White Blend
"The Three White is a splendid companion to the Three Red. Here again three unique and fascinating grapes comprise the final wine. All the fruit is sourced from the outstanding Boushey vineyard. The Grenache Blanc and Picpoul are co-fermented, and the Marsanne completes the wine. Together they put a Washington state spin on a blend you might find in the south of France — a wine with instant appeal, subtle complexity, excellent definition and the chance to age for up to a decade."
— Paul Gregutt
 
TASTING NOTE:
This wine is aromatic, dry and detailed. The first impression in both nose and mouth is of lemon cream, perhaps due to a small percentage being aged in new barrels for a short period of time. White peach, pink grapefruit and Meyer lemon fruit flavors continue, with that same lovely creaminess in the mouth. The finish is long, crisp and persistent, with a light vein of mineral and metal. All in all this is a very fine addition to the Aromatics lineup, drinking well immediately but also suitable for aging over the next several years. It has the grip and structure of a fine French wine.
 
VINTAGE NOTE:
The 2014 Washington State harvest proved to be spectacular with a record crop level and excellent quality. All factors needed for success came together perfectly: cool nights, lots of warm weather in the growing season, and rain limited mostly to the shoulder seasons. Harvest started the third week of August and wrapped up in the second week of November. The crop across the state was heavy, yet bountiful with quality. Our vineyard team enjoyed weather that enabled them to pick at will, affording perfect flavor, acidity and sugar levels.
