Vieux Telegraphe NV

Winemaker's Notes:

The Dry Creek Valley, known primarily for its delicious Zinfandel, also produces very intense and flavorful Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. This impressive Cabernet displays compelling aromas of sweet cherry, lush plum, and roses. The opulence of this wine shines through with a harmonious core of silky smooth tannins and rich fruit. Palate filling flavors of sweet currant, black cherry, and cocoa are perfectly balanced. This delicious wine should age beautifully for a decade or more.

The Premier Group started carrying Eagle Crest wines a year ago, after we met owner Will Ouweleen at an industry event in Albany. Shortly thereafter my family and I visited the vineyards, originally founded as O-Neh-Da Vineyard in 1872 by Bishop Bernard McQuaid, located about an hour from Orchard Park. We were treated to a wonderful tour of the estate and experienced the privilege of tasting his delicious, 100% Finger Lakes wine. This was one of the Draves family’s favorites, a 100% pure grape wine (no sugar added) offering tropical fruit on the nose, followed by pineapple and citrus notes, with mouthwatering grapefruity acidity on the finish. It is an off-dry, fruity, crisp wine that is pleasant enough for a party yet not out of place on the dinner table.

A lighter-bodied, mellow, unoaked white in the same vein as a Soave or Pinot Grigio. Pretty orange blossom, lemon zest and pear notes.

Tasting Notes:

Muscador’s Muscat grapes are aromatic and provide persistent notes for a characteristic flavour. The rosé has essentially floral notes and should be served very cool (between 6 and 8°C) and enjoyed as an aperitif, with desserts or to add a little sweetness to any time of the day.
