Our Flagship winery, we put our name on this one. Old world tradition and new world quality.
Our 2016 Riesling has a chamomile yellow color and aromas of white flower, lychee, pear, jasmine and kiwifruit. The palate is crisp with acidity. There is a nice weight to the wine that holds the complexing white fruit flavors on the tongue for quite some time.
The fruit from this blend was sourced from our premium winemaker’s blocks. The resulting wine shows a brilliant ruby stone color with aromas of dark chocolate truffle, fresh roasted coffee beans, blackberry pie, dense alpine forests, vanilla and freshly cut cherry wood. The palate is full-bodied with gripping tannins that provide the backbone for a lengthy cherry liqueur finish.
Harvested in December the wine shows a beautiful late harvest bouquet of honey, peaches, dried fruit and melon. The acidity is bright and refreshing perfectly balanced with the fruit and residual sugar. A really nice wine to drink young but if given time it will gain more of the classic kerosene notes found in premium Rieslings around the world.
Our 2016 Chardonnay has a rich golden mead-like color. The nose contains aromas of crisp apple, citrus, pineapple husk, light notes of plantains and an underlying hint of toasted grains. The palate is full and weighty with a brilliant acidity that strengthens onto the tip of the tongue and promotes a pleasing finish of light stone fruit, kiwifruit and lemon.
Our 2014 Claar Merlot has a dark color of boysenberry with a deep tone of purple plum. The nose contains dark spices of clove and anise with hints of Cynar amaro. Dark cherry and plum aromas are enveloped by a fragrance of confection and liquor. The palate is smooth and round with ash-like tannins melting away on the tongue. The finish is persistent with soft yet dark, candied black fruit flavor.
Our 2014 Cabernet-Merlot has a color of Marionberry Jam. Aromas of cherry and plum are evident and supported by a core of milled cedar. A fragile fragrance of thyme and an underlying scent of cocoa give complexity and depth to the nose. The palate is vibrant with gripping tannins and bright acidity. The wine finishes like a chocolate covered cherry.
This is a wine that peaks with strong varietal fruit of apple and citrus and is accompanied by toasty aromas, butterscotch and caramel - and a strong palate weight. The acidity is balanced and helps transform the wine on its way to a complex lingering finish.
Our 2016 Sauvignon Blanc has abundant aroma with notes of passionfruit, box tree, gooseberry, and grass. The palate contains opulent flavors of nectarine, pear, and kiwifruit with great volume and crisp acidity. The finish is very lengthy with tangy green fruit characters.
This wine possesses armoas of apple, citrus, orange blossom, toasted nuts and distinct minerality. The palate is bright with acidity and a rich texture that highlights flavors of baked apple and orange citrus.
Our 2013 Sangiovese is racing red in color which is termed “rosso corsa” when referring to the red color of Italian racecars such as Alfa Romeo, Maserati, and Ferrari. Intense aromas of red currants, strawberry jam and maraschino cherries are prominent with subtle round notes of tiramisu filling the bouquet. The palate contains bright acidity with soft and chewy tannins. The finish is soft and sweet leaving you wanting more.
