2017 Limited Release Muscat Canelli
A rich, sweet style of Muscat with unctuous flavors of ripe apricot and jasmine spice. For brunch, as an aperitif or after dinner, this wine is both versatile and decadent.
2016 Limited Release Jonté Sauvignon Blanc
Like a ripple dancing across the Loire River, this year’s Jonté Sauvignon Blanc begins gentle and fresh with light pear, white flower, and whispers of cut grass. Alluring lemon and passion fruit splash across the palate.
2017 Limited Release Syrah Rosé
A cooler vintage gave us Yakima Valley Syrah with wonderful acidity and classic flavors of strawberry and raspberry. We soaked the juice on the skins for 4 hours to get the perfect amount of color and flavor and fermented it in stainless steel to maintain the freshness.
2016 Limited Release Viognier
The fruit for this lovely Viognier was primarily fermented in stainless steel to show off beautiful floral aromas, delicate stone fruit with some tropical undertones. The balance of the blend was fermented and aged in neutral oak barrels to offer a hint of spice and give a soft oily texture to the palate.
2015 Limited Release Waussie Riesling
This wine is edgy, like any good Australian, but it shows the restraint and elegance of the Northwest. It is a dry Riesling that shows lime, mandarin, and white peaches tied together with beguiling ginger spice.
2015 Limited Release Tempestade
Instead of fortifying the grapes for a sweet wine, these are fermented to create a dry red wine. The result is an interesting duality; the Touriga Nacional, Tinto Cão and Tinta Madeira grapes bring an earthy depth to the wine while the Souzão layers acidity with bright fruit on top.
2017 Limited Release Oak Oval Gewürztraminer
Sourced from the cooler Yakima Valley, we allowed this juice to undergo a natural fermentation in upright French oak ovals. The wine has wonderful floral and apricot flavors with a spicy note held up by fresh acidity. Letting the wine rest on its lees in the oak lent soft texture and layers of complexity.
2017 Limited Release Oak Oval Chardonnay
In 2017, Chardonnay Block 5 at Zephyr Ridge Vineyard was outstanding. We fermented the wine using native yeast in a brand-new Oak Oval. The oval is not toasted on the inside like a new barrel, so the oak impact is very minimal. This is a complex, fruit-forward, fresh style of Washington Chardonnay.
Domaine Ste. Michelle Brut
Delicate aromas of green apple, bright citrus notes with a persistent bubble and balanced acidity. Domaine Ste. Michelle Brut is the perfect accompaniment for a wide array of foods.
Domaine Ste. Michelle Brut Rosé
Aromas of ripe strawberry with hints of apple and citrus. The initial impression is lively yet dry with subtle spice and berry flavors followed by an elegant, delicately sweet finish.
Domaine Ste. Michelle Extra Dry
The Domaine Ste. Michelle Extra Dry is a slightly sweeter style of sparkling wine. With delicate aromas of orange and lemon zest, this elegant wine reveals flavors of apples and pears with a persistent column of bubbles.
This wine exhibits beautiful aromatic complexity with aromas of apple, pear, freshly baked bread, and floral undertones. The palate is round, soft and slightly sweet, with flavors of Washington Gala apples, orange and floral notes with a slightly mineral and citrus peel finish.
