A Tasting of the August 2013 Estate Club Shipment
July 12, 2013 § Leave a comment
The 2013 August shipment brings us a new release Chardonnay – a vineyard designate stainless steel Chard from our Estate Vineyard #1. We saw such vast differences from the styles of Chardonnay produced in our Shenandoah Springs Vineyard and Estate Vineyard that we decided to bottle them separately. This Chard – the Sunset Hills Vineyard 2012 Estate Vineyard #1 Chardonnay – is bottled especially for the Estate Club.
In addition we’re releasing our Sunset Hills Vineyard 2010 Petit Verdot. We’ve allowed this wine 14 months in bottle before releasing it for sale, as the 2010 season gave us such a dense, powerful Petit Verdot, and we wanted to give it some mellowing before opening it to you guys. Below are the technical notes for these two wines.
