Wollersheim Winery Prairie Fumé 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

A crisp fresh semi-dry white bursting with citrus and tropical fruit aromas reminiscent of orange and grapefruit with a hint of sweetness. The Winery's most popular wine, perfect for every occasion and every taste. Prairie Fumé and our winemaker, Philippe, were awarded “Blockbuster Wine of the Year” and “Winemaker of the Year” awards for winning the most medals of any wine east of the Rockies. Wisconsin's famous nationally-acclaimed medal winner continues to add to its list of accolades including Platinum, Best of Show White and multiple Double-Gold & Gold Medals.

If their were only one winery in Wisconsin you could visit, it should be Wollersheim Winery near Prairie du Sac. This winery has a long history, beginning in the 1840's by Agoston Haraszthy, who later would leave and help start the wine industry in California during the gold rush. In 1972, Robert and JoAnn Wollersheim purchased the winery with the intent of restoring the family winery. They planted hillside slopes and the underground wine cellars were refurnished. The winery really took off after the marriage of their daughter Julie to French winemaker Phillipe Coquard. Their most awarded wine today is Prairie Fume, has a wine production of over 200,000 gallons in 2011 and is listed as a national historic place. Read less

A little more sweet this year than normal because the fruit is a little less. Still...fresh and crisp with lemongrass, grapefruit, melon and good acidity - this is a perfect hot deck wine. This vintage is very semillon like in presentation and structure. 88 points - drink now - Paul

I've been drinking this wine for nearly two decades now and have as yet to not be satisfied. Wonderful orchard florals with whisps of apple, spice and cardamom on the nose leading to a fruit drive body finishing with great minerality and acidity. Refreshing and mouthwatering. Drink now - Paul 89 points
