Moon Curser Vineyards 2014 Contraband Series Arneis, Okanagan Valley, $26

moon-curser-arneisThis Italian white grape rarely is seen in the Pacific Northwest, but one would hope the work in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley by Chris and Beata Tolley along the U.S./Canada border will prove to be inspiring. Its gorgeous nose is reminiscent of ambrosia salad, divinity and Red Haven peach. The drink is dry and succulent, bringing flavors of starfruit, Bosc pear and Granny Smith apple, leading to a finish of starfruit. This earned a gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition. Ceviche would be an ideal food pairing.
