2015 Syncline Whites

Two new 2015 whites from Syncline Cellars are perfect for summer meals and decktop sipping. The 2015 Syncline Grüner Veltliner comes from two distinct growing regions, the Columbia Gorge and Rattlesnake Hills. The wine shows wet stone, white pepper, and lime notes that make it a great complement to sushi and shellfish. The 2015 Syncline Grenache Blanc has flavors of apple and star fruit. The high elevation of Boushey Vineyard allows for longer, cooler maturity and preserves the natural acidity of the fruit.This is great to serve with seafood soups, the classic being bouillabaisse.

2013 California Dreaming

The 2013 vintage was one of the highest quality harvests in decades in Napa Valley. Smaller in quantity than the big 2012 harvest, 2013 had slightly cooler temperatures heading into harvest, which led to higher natural acidity levels than 2012. The wines have fine and smooth tannin structures. This is a vintage to collect.

2015 Collefrisio Pecorino

No it is not cheese, it is a light skinned wine grape grown in Italy’s eastern coastal regions. The 2015 Collefrisio Pecorino is dry, straw-yellow in color, and has a floral bouquet of acacia and jasmine. It is a crisp and delicious wine to serve with local shellfish.
