White Wines for Summer Seafoods
Part 1 of a 4-Part Series
By Chuck Hill
I have been judging oyster and seafood wines for more than 30 years, and this is the 14th year of reporting on tasty white wines for seafood under the WinesNorthwest.com banner.
Our first week’s tasting of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon wines was paired with delicious crab cakes and a Louie-style shrimp salad. A few Pinot Gris and Riesling wines were sampled in a follow-up tasting.
Columbia Valley AVA
This is the perfect season to visit Maryhill Winery in the eastern Columbia River Gorge near Goldendale, Washington. Warm sunshine and crystal clear views of the Gorge make for a quintessential NW experience with wine tasting, picnicking and a game of bocce adding to the fun. Check out the 2015 Semillon for its aromas and flavors of Fuji apple, lemon, pear and tropical notes.
