Palencia | Albariño

11 | 42

Bursting at the seams with bright fruit flavor, this Palencia Albariño is a blend of the warmer Spanish Castle Vineyard and cooler Evergreen Vineyard within the Ancient Lakes AVA. The Spanish Castle Albariño ripened two weeks earlier than Evergreen giving a flavor profile of ripe cantaloupe, apricot, and honeydew melon. The Evergreen fruit has more citrus, lemon zest flavors that are framed with bright minerality that coats and refreshes the palate. After harvest the grapes were fermented separately for 30 days in Hungarian oak puncheons then blended together before bottling. Enjoy the Galicia style lingering mineral notes chilled with your favorite seafood & salads.

Arona | Sauvignon Blanc

9 | 34

Muritai is located a half mile from the sea in one of the windiest and driest spots in Marlborough. Whilst bud-break is 7-10 days earlier there because of the proximity of a relatively warm sea in the spring, in the summer the breeze is stronger in the Awatere than elsewhere in Marlborough. And it’s strongest where Arona is, close to the sea. More wind makes their vines less prone to disease, reducing the need for treatments. Wind also reduces temperature, lowering yields and delaying maturity so the grapes see more of the cooler fall evenings. The cool evenings mean larger diurnal temperature changes as well as longer hang times, both of which help develop the aromas and flavors that give Arona wines their unique intensity.

Amity Vineyards | White Pinot Noir

12 | 46

From the vintner: It’s not often you come across a white pinot noir, which is why we strive to make our wine with a delicate touch to allow the unique properties of this red grape to come through as a white wine. We hand-pick our pinot noir grapes typically about a week earlier than when we pick for our red wines to preserve acidity. Then they are whole bunched pressed very gently which allows us to minimize maceration and have little color pick-up. All of the color and most of the tannin in red wine comes from the skin so if you press right away and press lightly you can extract the clear juice, creating a beautifully light-in-color white wine with red wine characteristics. Finally, we allow it to settle out in a tank overnight and then it is clean racked to ferment in stainless steel at a low temperature to retain aromatics. Like our white wines, it’s sur lee aged and bottled in the spring.

L’Ecole No. 41 | Chardonnay

13 | 50

Some of the best Chardonnays in Washington State are grown in the slightly cooler growing conditions of the Yakima Valley and in the northern latitudes of the Columbia Valley. The Schmitt and Oasis Vineyards (Yakima Valley) provide nice tropical fruit while Evergreen Vineyard (latitude 47 on the Columbia River) contributes crisp acidity and minerality. This classic Chardonnay offers an inviting mix of baked apple, Asian pear, and stone. With lemon oil and brioche on the mid-palate, this wine lively builds to a long mineral finish.

Alloro Vineyard | Chardonnay

A bright and attractively floral chardonnay with pears and white flowers on the nose. This leads to a palate that offers attractive, lemon focus and a neatly restrained, focused finish.

Warr-King | Roussanne

56

This 100% Roussanne spent both primary and secondary fermentation in French oak. This wine has an exotic bouquet of honeysuckle and apricot. The mouth feel is rich with hints of nectarine, honey and chamomile. This full body beauty is more reminiscent of a red wine as it is complex and ever-changing on the palate with a nice lingering finish. Roussanne is the perfect holiday food wine and pairs well with a vast array of soft and hard cheeses.
