We are pleased to announce that we now offer World Class Award Winning Wine from small family held wineries. These wines are all made naturally, grown organically, without any additives or preservatives. These wines are available by the bottle or the glass. Here are some examples of the wines we offer:
2006 Chateau Cantelaudette-Graves de Vayres-Deemed an official appellation in 1931, Graves de Vayres provides white wines typically made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle. They are epitomized by their round, balanced appeal, floral bouquets and crisp palates. Château Cantelaudette whose name in fact means, "song of the lark," expresses rich gooseberry aroma and pleasing lemony flavors. Ready to drink now or still provides great aging potential, well up to 2 more years. This is the essence of what a white Bordeaux should be. Great as an aperitif with olives or anchovies or serve with fresh, sautéed seafood or creamy pasta dishes.
2006 Hermit's View Chardonnay-South Eastern Australia-Winemaking is as much about people as it is about practices. We at Berton Vineyards are still young enough to be awed by the tradition but also to feel the need to challenge ourselves by testing the boundaries of winemaking." So says the dynamic winemaker Bob Berton who knows exactly what it takes to produce excellence. The palate is well balanced with grapefruit and fig tones rounded by creamy notes of oak and vanilla. Perfect with seafood dishes or creamy pasta.
2005 Le Lion d' Or-Vin de Pays des Coteaux de l'Ardeche- A real specialty of the region. The "Lion of Gold" is a fruity, semi-dry red wine blended from the finest grape varieties of the rugged hillsides around the Mediterranean city of Narbonne. One of our most popular wines for years ... you will love this even if you don't normally enjoy red wines.
2005 La Cour Pavillon-Bordeaux Superieur-Wineries from all over the world aspire to create wine in a Bordeaux style by blending there grapes to induce complexity. Right bank vintners believe in substantiating this history but when a vintage like 2005 comes around, Merlot was their ultimate performer. Robert Parker hailed it as an "extraordinary year," awarding 95+ points to Bordeaux for this vintage. With scents of raspberry and dark cherry, this wine exhibits ripe elegant fruit met with a powerful body and fullness. Ripe silky tannins flow over your palate as hints of chocolate and dark spices melt into your tongue. This wine is showing its full fruit now and with no oak aging, the 100% Merlot will peak in 2 to 3 years. Excellent to match with steak, pasta or soft cheeses. Try whipping up fettuccine pasta with asiago cheese and artichoke pesto topped with grilled sirloin cuts.
2004 Lushof Signet Red-StellenboschSouth Africa-The family run Lushof Estate is situated high on the slopes of Helderberg Mountain overlooking False Bay in the Western Cape of South Africa. Cooling sea breezes and Antarctic currents contribute to the near perfect growing conditions at such an elevated site, allowing for their eclectic new-age range of wines. All of the wines are handcrafted, nurtured, bottled and matured on the estate. The 2004 Signet Red is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz which shows firm tannins and spicy aromas of fresh concentrated raspberry and mocha. The Merlot in the blend presents mulberry fruits combined with ripe plum temptations. Its a delicious, juicy and fine textured wine perfect for hearty meats and cheeses.
