Avennia 2018 Sauvignon Blanc "Oliane" Yakima Valley, Washington
Oliane is 100% Sauvignon Blanc, barrel fermented using native yeast and bottled unfined. Our intent for this wine is to clearly express the richness and complexity this noble grape is capable of in Washington.
"Lively and complex aromas of peach, lemon oil, fresh straw, wet stone, and hints of honey and baking spice on the nose. On the palate, the concentration and structure of the vintage comes through, carrying intense citrus oils, straw, tarragon, and rocky minerality through the finish. A livewire natural acidity and minerality make for a refreshing finish to this impressive wine. While tasting great now, this wine looks to have an easy decade of aging potential." - Chris Peterson, Avennia Winemaker
