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.
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.
This fruit driven wine shocases the classic pepper, spice and deep blackberry flavors that are making Washington State Syrahs turn heads around the world.
2013 Melange Blanc Dessert
62% Semillon, 38% Sauvignon Blanc
Melange Blanc means "white blend" and is the premier white wine grown and produced by Wilridge Winery & Vineyard. To make Estate Melange Blanc, Wilridge winemaker Paul Beveridge blends organically and biodynamically grown Bordeaux varieties of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes from Wilridge Vineyard. The result is a complex sweet white wine reminiscent of a nice Sauternes that pairs well with fresh fruit and hard cheese or raspberry cheesecake.
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.
Trinquer is a fun little French word translating to “clink” in English. This intense blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon is aromatic and full bodied but finishes with a mineral notes and an orchard fresh apple acidity. It is a dry table wine with just a hint of fruit. Gather your friends and family around a table of fresh Pacific Northwest oysters, Washington cheese and a fresh baked baguette. Don’t forget to chill the Trinquer blend to wash it all down perfectly.
2001 Cuvee Alexander
Bright aromas of Chambord, cassis, pencil lead, damp earth and mocha are framed by toasty oak, toffee and barrel spice. In the mouth it displays juicy black cherry and ripe plum flavors
2013 Pinot Grigio-Crawford
Wilridge winemaker Paul Beveridge crafts Pinot Grigio in the classic Northern Italian style to emphasize the fresh citrus aromas and flavors of the grape.
2013 Pinot Gris
Pinot Gris, also know was Pinot Grigio and perhaps the most nuanced mutation of the noble Pinot Noir, produces flavorful wines with notable substance and color. This wine was fermented entirely in steel tanks. Early October storms in Vintage 2013 resulted in a grape harvest about two weeks earlier than usual, resulting in a wine with food-friendly acidity and citrus notes on the finish. It serves well as an aperitif or with fall salads, sliced fruits, a wide variety of cheeses and moderately seasoned fish.
This red wine was crafted from 100% Syrah grapes. The skin was left in with the juice to macerate and give the wine it’s deep scarlet hue. No oak barrels were used for this uncharacteristically bubbly Syrah. The wine was made into a sparkling by the Methode Champenoise. The rich body and crisp bubbles make this a staff favorite for a grand feast. It was the structure to stand with any strong protean and the balanced acid and refreshing fizz to wash down the whole spread.
With devotion, care, and careful attention, Treveri sparkling Syrah exudes sophistication and elegance, making it a paradigm of perfection. Red effervescence cascades through this sparkling, matched equally by dark fruit and complex yeast tones.
