I have not listed a “Wine of the Week” in some months. Vin du Lac so impressed me with their 2009 LEHM Pinot Gris, that I feel it is a perfect choice for the week. My first experience with a Vin du Lac LEHM wine was at Taste Washington Seattle in 2008. I was impressed then and I'm impressed now. There's a lot going on with this wine and I love how dry, dry it is.

Winemaker Larry Lehmbecker launched his "LEHM" label in 2005, for wines made exclusively with fruit from the Lake Chelan Valley. In 2010, WinePress Northwest honored Vin du Lac as "Northwest Winery of the Year." Lake Chelan is cultivating some truly premium fruit and it shows in this wine. A beautiful vacation destination east of the Cascades, Lake Chelan has become a premium wine country destination. I look forward to tasting more of Larry's superlative wines.
