2015 Nouveau Tasting Notes


2015 Müller-Thurgau

Puget Sound

Made from the fruits that grace the entrance of to St. Michelle’s Woodinville Chateau, these donated Muller Thurgau grapes were handpicked by NW Wine Academy students. The nose is very pretty, being both fruity and floral. Peach, pear and pineapple mingle with subtle hints of lilac and sea salt. Alcohol is low enough to allow you to indulge your summer thirst and carry on through your outdoor meal.

2015 Blaufränkisch

Yakima Valley

Blaufränkisch is grown mostly in Austria, where it makes a spicy red wine that can be graceful yet intense, complex yet tangy and refreshing. Blaufränkisch is also grown in Germany, where it is called Lemberger.

Even five years ago, Blaufränkisch wines were not easy to find in the United States. Now that has all changed – this is our third Blaufränkisch vintage. And we think it will age superbly. Right now, it’s light-bodied and subtle, beautifully balanced with smoky, spicy fruit flavors with a touch of cinnamon and a rippling acidity that makes it seem juicy, savory and refreshing. Will becoming denser, richer in a few months but without heaviness.

Suggested Food Pairings: Great versatility with food with its red peppery hints – pair with bruschetta, tomato and basil pizza or pasta with tomato based sauces, feta cheese or caprese salad.

Alcohol: 14.8% by volume

Cases Produced: 49
