A delightful wine, with a complex and intriguing bouquet that resonates with fresh, delicate notes of grapefruit, grapes, peaches and spring flowers. On the palate, this first vintage of October is full and rich with a vibrancy that supports a palette of ripe fruits and citrus. Delicate and exquisite, the finish becomes longer and more developed with sublime and abundant fruit flavors.
The vineyard is situated on three gently rolling hills. The Chardonnay variety is planted on mainly clay-limestone soils and the property also has a proportion of sand and clay, that produces very fine, aromatic whites.
Harvested fruit is cleaned and then put into temperature controlled vats. Once selected yeasts have been added, the musts are fermented for approximately two weeks at low temperature. When the alcoholic fermentation is completed, the wines are racked once and put back into vat where they are aged on their lees for 3 to 5 months. They are kept in vat until bottling and only blended at this point.
Light.. super light, crisp, & bubbly. This is ridiculously refreshing. Made from a blend of Loureiro, Trajadura, & Arinto, this wine is not only incredibly fun to drink, it's far more complex than expected. The Trajadura and Arinto varieties give it body and length, as well as aromas of apple and grapefruit, while the Loureiro provides floral and herbal elements. This is a daytime crab smashing, beach cruising, pool side companion.
Why We Love it:
Two words: Sustainability... and chilling. Wine maker Carlos Teixeira is deeply dedicated to the long term viability of the environment. Water conservation, solar power, light weight recycled packaging, its all there. On the fun side, we love that these bubbles come in at only 9% ABV which makes it such a fun wine for hanging out with friends during the summer days.
A crisp orange wine perfect to pair with spicy foods, springtime and ... well, anything. The 2017 vintage of this wine landed us on Sunset Magazine’s top 100 wines list. It will make you a believer in non-red wines. We use a mix of white grapes from different vineyards that we de-stem and ferment on skins, resulting in a beautiful showcase of all the delicate flavors of white wine, but with more substance and texture.

"Jacob Gundlach brought over this grape from his homeland and it has been growing on Rhinefarm ever since. Although plenty of wineries in Alsace make their Gewürztraminers a little sweet, we vinify ours completely dry, with bright acidity."
Aromas of allspice, jasmine and citrus burst from the glass. Luscious flavors of pink grapefruit, white nectarine, navel orange, lychee and starfruit are spiced with fresh ginger and coriander.
With wonderful aromas of apple cider, chalk and lemon zest, this clean and focused wine expands on the palate to reveal warm apple crisp, clove and quince nuances.
Possessing a long, concentrated citrus finish, this wine pairs perfectly with roasted pork, shellfish and egg-based sauces or as a charming cocktail beverage.
