Fidelitas Optu White Wine 2021, Red Mountain, Washington

Fidélitas is faithful to Bordeaux grape varietals, loyal to modern craft winemaking, and true to Red Mountain. “We are a family-owned, multigenerational winery that sources fruit from both our 15-acre estate and esteemed vineyard partners throughout the Red Mountain appellation. Our legacy has been built on the back of hard work and our affinity for Bordeaux varieties, crafting single-varietal, single-vineyard bottlings and old-world style blends that speak of their unique time and place.” A blend of 58% Sauvignon Blanc and 42% Semillon from 30+ year-old vines make up the 2021 Optu White Wine by Fidelitas. Lovely notes of honey-coated pear, honeysuckle flower, sweet baking spice, toasted walnut shell, and grilled lemon are all present in the glass. Rich, and lush with ample amounts of tension, Washington white wines just keep getting better and better, and Fidelitas knocked it out of the park with this one.
