Lot 259 Columbia Valley Riesling/Chenin Blanc 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes: Pale yellow with a golden straw center. This wine is layered with racy citrus and stone-fruit facets. Sultry nectarine and white floral notes float over sherbet-qualities and bright acidity. A juicy and balanced palate resolve couples with a vibrant and fresh finish. This wine is great on its own or with light summer fare or spicy foods. Cameron Confidential: We received samples from this winery last year and were very impressed. Quite often, we receive samples of great wine that with some TLC from our winemaker Sam Spencer can really shine. In the case of Lot 151 and now 259, Sam blended in about 30% Chenin Blanc to round out an already killer Riesling. This balanced the acid and sugar of the Riesling while filling the nose with some gorgeous fruit. I am very excited to release Lot 259, the following year’s vintage of Lot 151 just in time for summer.
