PLATINUM AWARD “Brent Charnley planted his vineyard on Lopez Island in 1987 and has led the way regionally for top-quality Siegerrebe. This superb example opens with exotic aromas of honeysuckle, candy corn, apricots and a hint of botrytis, followed by flavors of dried apricots, lemon zest and honeysuckle.”

“Excellent: Brent Charnley annually achieves success with his organic expression of this little known variety. It opens with a slightly orangey hue, and the aromas include Mandarin orange, grapefruit, cling peach, dried apricot, lime, coconut, rose petal and hints of Bananas Foster. There’s follow through on the palate with more grapefruit and white peach as the acidity keeps on coming via gooseberry, Granny Smith apple, starfruit and Meyer lemon. Serve confidently with seafood.”
