Founded over 20 years ago in Walla Walla, Washington, Tamarack Cellars helped forge what was to become one of the northwest’s premier winegrowing regions. The winery was named for the Tamarack tree and is located in a restored World War II fire station and barracks. The Tamarack is a symbol for the land on which the grapes are grown and an emblem of the adventurous spirit and vision to make world-class wines in this unspoiled part of America.
Our inaugural vintage of Firehouse White, a companion to our acclaimed Firehouse Red, has been carefully crafted to provide a crisp, bright, fruit forward and well-balanced wine that can pair with an array of foods or be enjoyed on its own.
The 2018 Tamarack Cellars Firehouse White begins with loads of peach, apple and assorted tropical fruits on the very pleasing nose along with a touch of lemon custard and honeysuckle. The wine tastes smooth and delicious with the Chardonnay making itself known but also complementing the Pinot Gris quite nicely. In the mouth you’ll find similar flavors to the nose along with nice touches of spice and great depth of flavor. This is quite good and quite interesting. It ends with lingering tropical fruit and continued touches of spice on the decently long finish.
