2018 The Eyrie Vineyards Chasselas Doré$33.00Tasting Notes Chasselas Doré is an old grape variety born in the Jura and Alps mountain ranges of Switzerland. Fresh, tropical and savory, it is light on its feet while having a surprising amount of structure and body. This wine is made from two rows of organically grown, ungrafted vines. The attentive vineyard practices of Eyrie demand focus on rigorous training of the vines, minimal interference with the ecosystem, and on picking at the optimal time. Insecticides, herbicides, and systemic chemicals are never used in the vineyards. In the winery, they refrain from unnecessarily manipulating the wines during their fermentation and maturation. The Eyrie Chasselas ages 6 month on lees. In spite of full natural malolactic fermentation the wine is crisp.
2019 Amity Vineyards White Pinot Noir$27.00Tasting Notes It’s not often you come across a white pinot noir, which is why Amity strives to make theirs with a delicate touch to allow the unique properties of this red grape to come through as a white wine. They hand-pick our pinot noir grapes typically about a week earlier than when they pick for their red wines to preserve acidity. Then the fruit is whole bunched pressed very gently which allows to minimize maceration and have very little color pick-up. All of the color and most of the tannin in red wine comes from the skin so if you press right away and press lightly you can extract the clear juice, creating a beautifully light-in-color white wine with red wine characteristics. Pear, honeydew, golden raspberry with a round mouth feel followed by a bright, clean finish. It’s a must try!
