Chardonnay – Yakima Valley: …………………………………………………..Oak 6 / Body 5 / Sweetness 0
We have been using Yakima Chardonnay for several years to add top note flavour or complexity to several of our wines. It finally gets a starring role in this new Chardonnay which is designed to reflect today’s style of Chardonnay. It has fruit-centered aromas and flavours of citrus, green apple and pear held together with balanced, juicy acidity. When released,we expect to see a brisk, medium weight Chardonnay typical of the Yakima style. The more refined style will make for a broader range of synergistic food pairing possibilities.

We think that this wine may make you change your mind about Chardonnay, if you have tired of the brawny, over-oaked wines which have become so common-place.

Gewürztraminer – Riesling: ………………………………………………….Oak 0 / Body 5 /Sweetness 2
Multiple medal winner*. Peach and melon undertones from Riesling marry beautifully with the spice, mango, grapefruit and lychee notes from Gewürztraminer. Incredibly elegant with a hint of sweetness from our Riesling-based Flavour Reserve. Enjoy young and fresh or cellar for a more harmonious profile. Extremely food friendly. Enjoy young and not over-chilled.

Viognier: …………………………………………………………………………..Oak 0 / Body 5 / Sweetness 1
Multiple medal winner*. An amazing, full-bodied, aromatic wine with a creamy mouth-feel. Unbelievable aromas and flavours of apricot,mango, pineapple, guava, kiwi, tangerine, orange blossom and spiced pear absolutely dazzle the senses. Our Flavour Reserve balances the grape’s edge and creates a full, off-dry, lingering finish.

On its own, 1 glass will almost exhaust your palate. Pair it with spicy,Asian foods and discover magic! It is amazing with Thai curry. Drink young and not over-chilled.

Pinot Gris:………………………………………………………………………..Oak 0 / Body 5 / Sweetness 1
Lazy Lizard Vineyard, Yakima Valley, Washington

Winner of 3 Golds in 2008 *Displays aromatic notes of green apple and lemon against a floral  and honeyed background. Our natural Flavour Reserve creates a rich mouth-feel with tangy fruit acid balancing the hint of sweetness. Floral and mineral notes persist in the lingering finish. The wine’s full character and charm become most apparent after several months of bottle aging. Should show well for up to 18 months. A good choice for foods rich in butter and oil, garlic and lively spices. Consider for shrimp, crab and fish dishes; rich pastas; cannelloni with ricotta, chicken and most Chinese and Thai dishes. Serve lightly chilled.

WINEXPERT ECLIPSE

German Mosel Valley Gewürztraminer
The Mosel valley is famous for its beautiful scenery and excellent wines. Gewrztraminer grapes from this region tend to be a dusky pink colour, and result in wines from light to a dark golden yellow with subtle copper tones. Gewrztraminer is quite full-bodied, more so than most any other white wine type and the combination of its strong and heady perfume, exotic lychee flavour and rich texture make it a powerful wine with an intense and memorable finish.
Sweetness: Off-Dry | Body: Medium | Oak Intensity: None

New Zealand Marborough. Sauvignon Blanc
Marlborough has the sunniest, driest climate in New Zealand, and the Wairau Valley’s rich soils combine with the cool nights to deliver astonishingly pungent wines, with gooseberry, herbs, pink grapefruit, fresh-cut grass, asparagus, lime-leaf, tropical fruit, passion fruit, and a host of other beguiling aromas. Few wines ever achieve the amazing aromatic complexity and zesty fruit of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. The expression of this amazing explosion of fruit is aided by our special proprietary yeast: by careful management of the yeast strain, Selection Estate New Zealand Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc casts long, rich flavours, redolent with grass and currant leaves, and a crisp dry finish.
Sweetness: Dry | Body: Medium | Oak Intensity: None
