2015 Seaglass Sauvignon Blanc

SEAGLASS Wine Company gets its name from the shards of glass that are polished—over decades—into beautiful, one-of-a-kind gems by the natural ebb and flow of wind, sea and fog. Our wines encapsulate the ocean air, the sandy coastline and the fresh acidity of cool-climate fruit along the Central Coast. Crafted from wind-swept vines that give us nuanced flavors in the cellar and complex notes in the glass, our wines are an unmistakable expression of California’s coastal vineyards.

From the Wine Maker – “This Santa Barbara County Sauvignon Blanc has exhilarating aromas of lemon, lime, grapefruit and fresh cut grass. A clean, crisp palate of gooseberry, tangerine and a touch of minerality paves the way for mouthwatering acidity and a lightly tart finish. We crafted this wine in the classic style of coastal Sauvignon Blanc, retaining the naturally fresh fruit flavor of the grapes by carefully avoiding any oxygen exposure during winemaking. A cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks allowed the wine’s delicate varietal flavors and crisp acidity to flourish. We chose not to employ malolactic fermentation before bottling the wine, which preserved its hallmark freshness.”

2011 Chateau Ste Michelle Cold Creek Chardonnay

Chateau-Ste-Michelle-Cold-Creek-ChardonnayThis 2011 Columbia Valley chardonnay has fruit forward flavors and plenty of natural acid. The growing season started a week late in blooming, but caught up as the perfect ripening weather lasted through September. The weather was not too hot, which allowed grapes to retain their natural acidity.

From the winemaker – “Cold Creek Chardonnay is typified by concentration and intensity from the 40-year-old vines and warmth of the site. This Chardonnay is a decadent style with ripe fruit and a toasty character. The cooler 2011 vintage in Washington provided enhanced acidity with an elegant finish.”

Great with seafood risotto, salmon, veal.

2012 Beringer Napa Valley Chardonnay

Beringer-Napa-Valley-ChardonnayBeringer’s Napa Valley Chardonnay is a vibrant expression of this beautiful varietal and the depth and complexity of flavor it can exhibit. Winemaker Laurie Hook chooses complementary lots from AVAs in the cool southern end of the valley to craft a wine that is the quintessential expression of Napa Valley terroir. Beringer’s Chardonnay vineyards span several sub-appellations in southern Napa Valley, where fog from the San Pablo Bay works its way north most afternoons during the growing season, cooling the vineyards and allowing for a longer maturation period. The majority of the blend comes from our Big Ranch and Yountville vineyards, located on the valley floor. These vineyards produce Chardonnays with fine fruit flavors and crisp natural acidity.

From the winemaker – “Refreshing, crisp citrus notes accentuate this lively Chardonnay. A medium, rounded mouthfeel is highlighted with flavors of lemon meringue and a pleasing acidity.”

2013 Hess Select Chardonnay

Hess-Select-ChardonnayThis vintage will be remembered for its long, cool growing season and the absence of excessive heat events, which allowed for ripe flavors to develop on the vine without excessive sugar accumulation. The resulting wines show an elegant balance of fruit and acidity with lower alcohol.

From the winemaker – “Aromas of pear and citrus, highlighting lemon and lime, are followed on the  palate with pineapple and tropical fruit flavors. Medium bodied and refreshing,  a subtle oak toast balances acidity, resulting in a wine crafted in a modern, fruit-forward  style, wonderful to enjoy on its own as an apéritif, or with a wide array of  dishes across many cuisines.”

This wine’s natural acidity complements tangy, spicy foods and shows well with the richness of creamier dishes. Enjoy with Asian chicken salad, grilled tuna with melted anchovy butter and lemon, or a creamy pasta dish with Portobello mushrooms.

2011 BackHouse Pinot Grigio

back-house-pinot-grigioIn 1994, Roy and Rachael Cecchetti purchased a two and a half-acre parcel in the Sonoma Valley, one mile east of the Plaza. On that parcel, situated next to the grand willow tree and the natural spring fed pond, was an old backhouse. Through some research of the property, it was discovered that the old backhouse was once home to vintners, writers, artists and those who craved the solitude and enjoyment of nature. Backhouse wines were created to bring these memories back to life for a new generation.

From the Wine Maker – “pale straw in color with complex flavors of fruits and herbs. Round and full, this wine can be enjoyed with a variety of foods such as salads and poultry dishes.”

Try with Shellfish like scallops, clams, mussels or raw oysters.  Also shrimp with any Thai or spicy Asian sauces.
