2015 Nelms Road Cabernet Sauvignon
Alcohol: 14.7% by volume
Composition: 100% cabernet sauvignon
About Nelms Road: In 1998, Woodward Canyon Winery began producing wines under its second label, Nelms Road. Nelms Road offers a red blend and cabernet sauvignon from Walla Walla Valley and Washington State grapes. It was developed to produce delicious and affordable red wine from younger vineyards and surplus lots of Woodward Canyon production. While these wines may be cellared for several years, they are truly ready for enjoyment now.
Description: This new bottling of Nelms Road Cabernet Sauvignon reflects the 2015 vintage well. The younger vines from select vineyards continue to produce better grapes allowing us to produce better wine nearly every year. Add to that some truly phenomenal press wine from some of the oldest and most celebrated vineyards in Washington State, and we can produce an exceptional cabernet sauvignon at a very attractive price. The very warm growing conditions of 2015 gave enticing aromas of mature black current fruit, exotic spices,
tobacco, and earth. The wine is deep red in color. In the mouth the wine offers firm blackberry fruit, ripe mature tannins, beautiful texture and a long generous finish; the wine is in brilliant proportion. While this wine was produced for early consumption, it will improve with additional time in bottle. With proper storage this wine should easily age five years or longer. This red wine would be fantastic with wood-fired pizza, roasted meats and aged cheese.
2016 Tiefenbrunner Chardonnay
Alcohol: 13.5% by volume
Composition: 100% chardonnay
About Tiefenbrunner: We (Sabine and Christof) are running the Tiefenbrunner Castel Turmhof Wine Estate in the fifth generation. A legacy as a privilege – and as a duty to continue to write the story of the Tiefenbrunner wine-making family, chapter by chapter, year by year, vintage by vintage.
The Linticlar Estate is first mentioned in records dating from 1225. But Stone Age and Bronze Age finds in the area of the castle ruins above the winery show that it has been a site of human settlement since prehistorical times. The Turmhof was registered as a winery in the commercial register in 1848. That makes it one of the oldest wine estates in South Tyrol.
Before the end of the 2nd World War, Herbert Tiefenbrunner (1928-2015) started work as a wine-maker when he was only 15 years of age. His later wife Hilde opened the Jausenstation snack bar in 1968. In May 2012 we took over the winery with a commitment to continue in the centuries-old tradition of our wine-making culture.
Description: Using grapes grown the hillside vineyards in Cortaccia where the soil is chalk gravel moraine and in the valley floor locations near Magrè where the soil is sandy alluvial, this luminous pale yellow Chardonnay with its resplendent green reflexes offers a pleasant aroma of meadow flowers, typical for the variety, reminiscent of exotic fruits. It is slightly tangy, wellstructured, full in the mouth and lasting in the finish. This wine would pair well with fish, seafood, white meat, risotto and cheese dumplings.
