Sineann Gruner Veltliner Columbia Gorge Pear Blossom Vyd 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

A rare bottling of the Austrian varietal now produced in Washington state. Rich with a mouth coating feel with notes of soft citrus, honey and candied ginger spice. This is a great wine to pair with poultry or a rich seafood dish. Not yet reviewed; 2014 vintage rated 89 points by Wine Enthusiast: This variety is an extreme rarity in the state, with only a small handful of bottlings made. This one offers aromas of herbs, spice and green apple skin that carry through to the palate, which drinks just off dry.

We source our fruit from some of the best vineyards in the region; Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris from the Willamette Valley and the Hood River Valley, Cabernet, Merlot and Zinfandel from the Columbia Valley, Gewurztraminer from the Columbia Gorge. We've started making wine from the Napa Valley. (We hear it is a world class winegrowing region.) We also make wine in New Zealand - Pinot Noir and Sauvi... Read more
We source our fruit from some of the best vineyards in the region; Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris from the Willamette Valley and the Hood River Valley, Cabernet, Merlot and Zinfandel from the Columbia Valley, Gewurztraminer from the Columbia Gorge. We've started making wine from the Napa Valley. (We hear it is a world class winegrowing region.) We also make wine in New Zealand - Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc. Making wine in only one hemisphere is so boring... Our growers have great pride in the grapes they provide us. Almost all our wines are vineyard designated. No expense is spared in our pursuit of great wine. Crop levels are kept very low, one to three tons per acre. Winemaking is meticulous. All fruit is hand sorted, delicately destemmed, punched down by hand, gently pressed and gravity racked. The wines are aged in new and one year old French oak. The bottom line is, we strive to make great wine. It's the only kind of wine that makes it onto our dinner table. It's exciting to make and gratifying to share. We believe that food and drink, lovingly prepared, make for happier and healthier people. Read less
