JULY 2017 WINES OF THE MONTH

Based in the heart of Sonoma’s Russian River Valley, we proudly present the Heritage Reserve wines from De Loach Vineyards. The folks at De Loach Vineyards strive to produce distinctive wines that spotlight unique terroirs in a socially and environmentally responsible way, practicing sustainable viticulture and utilizing minimally intrusive winemaking techniques.

2016 De Loach Vineyards Heritage Reserve Chardonnay
The fruit for this Pinot Noir is predominantly from the Delta region of California. A small portion is aged in seasoned barrels to impart slight oak characteristics to the wine, but most is kept in stainless steel in order to stay true to the wine’s lighter, food-friendly style. This bright, ruby wine opens with fresh aromas of dark cherry and strawberry notes with a touch of baking spices. Bright and lifted flavors of strawberry pie and hints of brown sugar lead to a soft, round mouthfeel with medium body and a long, juicy finish. $8.99

2016 Portillo Sauvignon Blanc
The winemaker chose to ferment the grapes for this luscious wine in stainless steel to preserve the natural crispness and fresh fruit flavors. He then blends in a small amount of richly textured, barrel-fermented Chardonnay to attain the beautiful balance that this approachable, fruit-forward wine displays. The wine offers aromas of lemon verbena and orange blossom with hints of woodruff. Floral and herbaceous notes on the palate are complimented by tropical Mango flavors leading to a round mouthfeel and clean finish. It is a delightfully balanced wine with a bright acidity that makes it an easy pairing for steamed fish and vegetables or crab salad with remoulade dressing. $8.99

2016 De Loach Vineyards Heritage Reserve Rosé
All the grapes for this Rosé were harvested, separated, and pressed immediately to become Rosé. A small amount of saignée Pinot Noir and Zinfandel was added to give the wine just a touch more weight and juiciness. This wine is a delightful aperitif with floral aromatics of white jasmine and orange blossom with ripe raspberry notes. Refreshing on the palate, it delivers juicy flavors of wild strawberry, Bing cherry, and a touch of rose petal all while balancing its bright acidity and a smooth finish. Brilliant on its own, it is also a delicious pairing with mild cheeses, flakey white fish dishes, and rosemary chicken. $8.99
