2022 Leadfoot Louie Washington White Wine Blend
2022 Washington White Wine Blend
13% Alc. by volume
AVA: Columbia Valley, WA
60% Semillon / 40% Sauvignon Blanc
Name Origin: - a wine to honor Pam's mom Helen Louise (aka - Leadfoot Louie)
Leadfoot Louie – Adrice Wines’ white Bordeaux blend - is a staple every year on our Spring tasting sheet. “Leadie” as we lovingly refer to her, is consistently beautiful, easy to drink, and our wine club members swear that we must prick a small hole in each bottle because it empties so quickly!
There's a bit more Semillon than Sauv Blanc in this year's tank of the '55 T-Bird convertible ....and oh boy does it make that engine purr. Smell ripe peaches and a little basil as you careen through a hilly orchard with the top down on a warm summer's day. Those peaches carry right on into the palate along with some tart Granny Smith apple, lemon citrus, and honey to whet your whistle. Her tart acidity provides a beautiful finish that's not too short, but comfortable - and leaves you yearning for more.
With food, we're thinking a bright, tart, tangy Goat cheese with Sesame crackers and a bowl of salty snack mix on the side. Or, explore Leadie with Thai or Asian food like fresh Spring Rolls with peanut sauce, Edamame, or a spicy Pad Thai with seafood or chicken.
Both Pam (and her mom Helen Louise) have stepped up their game with our 2022 Leadfoot Louie White Bordeaux blend. Make sure to pick up a case as Summer begins, because we've seen people in tears that we run out of her early in the season!
