2012 Estate Barbera
Wilridge winemaker Paul Beveridge loves working with Italian grape varietals. Barbera is from the Piedmont region of northwest Italy where Nebbiolo and Dolcetto are also grown. The Piemontese sometimes say that they drink Barbera while they are waiting for the Nebbiolo to mature in the cellar. Barbera has wonderful fruity notes and bright acidity, making it a great wine for pastas with red sauces or traditional pizza.
2012 Estate Sangiovese
Sangiovese, “The Blood of Jove”. This Italian varietal has taken happily to the high terrain of Wilridge Vineyard in Naches Heights. This ancient varietal, known in 16th century Rome, is becoming a standard player here in Washington. The mineral and earth notes will take your senses to the windblown Cowiche Canyon, on top of which Wilridge Vineyard majestically thrives. We recommend inviting a hot date over to watch Sofia Loren movies, share a bowl of pasta and slowly sip this seductive wine.
2012 Estate Zweigelt
The Zweigelt varietal was developed in 1922 by Fritz Zweigelt by crossing the St. Laurent and Blaufränkisch varietals. It is the most planted grape in Austria. Wilridge Vineyard received it on accident, as the original plantings were believed to be Pinot Gris. This chance meeting proved a match made in terroir heaven. The low nutrient high elevation vineyard also has the cool nights that Zweigelt favors. The wine’s body is light but fruit and spice notes are bold.
No "I'll have a Merlot" light weight kind of wine, this one. It's full of blackberry and cherry and is chewy - not to excess, with oak but definitely a wine that will be enjoyed most by folks who like to carry on a dialog with their wine.
This is the embodiment of a classic Washington Merlot. old with an aged smoothness and even tanninc, try this archetype to blow you Merlovin' mind!
2013 Muscat Blanc- port style
Wilridge's Estate Muscat Blanc is made in the style of a classic French Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise dessert wine. The Muscat grapes were crushed by foot and pressed by hand. Fermentation proceeded until October 30th when brandy was added to stop the fermentation at 6 degrees brix residual sugar. The resulting wine hints of orange blossoms on the nose while the mid-palate is rich and satisfying. A delicious sweet wine, it will accompany many desserts and cheeses, or may even serve as dessert on its own. Bon appetite!
