2017 Limited Release Viognier
This vibrant Viognier is mostly fermented in stainless to show off lively floral aromas, juicy tropical tones and hints of stone fruit. It is aged on lees for a velvety palate. The barrel portion of the blend is a co-fermentation of Viognier, Marsanne and Rousanne to add the rich spicy complexity on the finish.
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 bottle fermented sparkling wine, produced using traditional Méthode Champenoise techniques, exhibits fruit-forward aromas of lemon-lime, fresh flowers and crisp green apple. Ripe pear and hints of baking spices greet the palate with a sweet-tart finish.
