July 2021 Cellar Society release info

2020 Albariño & 2020 Viognier       

Our estate grown 2020 Albariño received a Double Gold medal and went on to receive the honor of BEST IN CLASS at the Sunset Wine Competition 2021!
 
Beloved members of our Cellar Society will be the first to receive and enjoy this outstanding wine in their July release!
 
The color of pale yellow with a slight green tinge, our 2020 Albariño is beautifully crystal clear. Aromas of green apple, kiwi, and starfruit draw you into this dry, crisp, and lovely white wine. Notes of wet stone, mint leaves, and lemon cream develop on the palate and are followed by a hint of cumquat in the long, lingering finish. This vintage integrates the hallmark acidity of Albariño with a bit of palate weight and creaminess for a wine that is refreshing and foodfriendly. Enjoy with fresh oysters, halibut, or sushi, as well as dishes with spice and sweetness, such as Indian chutney or Thai curry. We recommend serving this wine chilled, but not ice cold, as more flavors and nuance will be revealed at a slightly warmer temperature.
 
One third of our distribution to you will include our upcoming release of our most awarded wine...Kriselle Cellars Viognier. Year after year, judges and reviewers alike have recognized our Viognier for excellent character and quality. The 2020 is one of our finest vintages to date.
 
Inviting aromas of mandarin orange, banana, and a hint of honeysuckle blend into flavors of lemon meringue, glazed pineapple, and cantaloupe on the palate of our 2020 Viognier. Abundant fruit character is fully expressed through the long finish of this dry and delicious white wine. Balanced acidity provides vibrancy and a lively mid-palate. We enjoy this luscious white wine on its own and we find it exceptional when paired with grilled chicken, seafood, and cuisine with a hint of spice such as Thai or Indian cuisine.
 
These are two different white wines that demonstrate the beauty of our region and Winemaker Scott Steingraber's talent with white wine varieties.

Sangiovese/Cabernet Sauvignon

For our members that have elected to receive Red Wines Only: We have a very special, limited production wine to release to you: Our "Super Tuscan" Sangiovese/Cabernet Sauvignon (or S/CS) is a lovely blend of two grape varieties that complement each other for a delicious, food friendly, well-balanced blend. Perfect to pair with summer BBQ fare!

Cellar Society members who have been with us for a time might remember our “Super Tuscan” from previous years. We have crafted two vintages of this red wine blend in the past: in 2013 and in 2016. They have been some of our most popular releases and we are excited to share this special wine with you again.

Dark red berry and smoked meat aromas and flavors provide the fruit and spice character that is the essence of our S/CS. This medium to full-bodied red wine blend balances savory Sangiovese with polished Cabernet Sauvignon in harmony. Showcasing integrated tannins and lifting acidity, this red wine blend has an appealing texture, mature ripe fruit flavors and a long mouth-watering finish. As you explore our S/CS look for notes of black cherries, dried and fresh herbs, fine leather, and a hint of black tea. The herbaceous nature of our S/CS make it an ideal wine to pair with your favorite Italian recipes - especially those that feature tomato based sauces, spicy sausages, roasted pork, fresh garlic, rosemary, and parmesan cheese.
