Winemaker's Notes:

schimmerndes Goldgelb, feine Aromatik mit angenehm eingebundener Säure, langanhaltend am Gaumen, Dieser Wein ist eine interessante, österreichische Rarität.

Curious by nature and eager to embrace new adventures, it didn’t take much for friend and winemaker Helen Turley to inspire in Bill the desire to try his hand at Pinot Noir. In 1992, under a new W.

The first vintage of Maritime Ridge Vineyards—the Smith's rising star—was harvested in 2002 and was released in the spring of 2004. Read less

It had what you expect from a Zinfandel, namely dark fruits and chile's but wasn't spectacular. Price is really what it has going for it

Just a real solid red wine...if there wasn't some many others and so few years left...I would gladly settle on this for "my glass of the day" everyday.

Knackiger, eleganter Weisswein! Schöne Balance zw. süss/sauer. Wunderbar frisch! Leichter Cytrus-Geschmack
