This single-vineyard blend includes Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc Musque, from a one-acre site in the Columbia Gorge AVA. It's labeled as a field blend, which suggests that the grapes were co-fermented; the results are harmonious and quite appealing. The mix of crisp citrus and tart pear fruit is set against flinty acids that set up the taste buds for chèvre or light seafood.
