I recently visited the Soléna and Grand Cru Estate in Yamhill, OR. This wine, the only white produced, is very zippy and has lots of refreshing acidity in addition to loads of citrus and tropical fruit characteristics. Presumably much of the warmth this wine shows is from the warmer Rogue Valley appellation in southern Oregon. Definitely a good food wine. For a detailed review, see this Quick Sip.
