Discover more about our high-elevation, Colorado white and rosé wines.
We are proud to release our second vintage of high-elevation white and rosé wines, made with 100% Colorado fruit. Each of our 2018 wines earned a silver medal or higher in the 2019 Colorado Governor’s Cup competition, including our Riesling and Dry Riesling, which both earned double gold, an award given to only 14 wines out of 251 submitted this year.
We are excited to see where our 2019 wines take us.
We finished the 2019 harvest season with just under twenty tons of fruit and 13 separate fermentations, 11 of which were white, two of which were rosé. We blended some and left others untouched, resulting in the first wave of wines that you see here. We will release five more this fall. The high acidity that results from our dramatic diurnal temperature shifts creates vibrant, mouth-watering, aromatic white and rosé wines. These are the perfect accompaniment to a wide range of cuisines.
The distinctly different styles of wine from the Rhône and Rhine river valleys come together in our 2019 RRV white blend. This food-friendly, all-season wine boasts texture and spice from the Roussanne, stone fruit aromas and acidity from the Riesling, and floral and orchard fruit flavors from the Viognier.
Elegant, sophisticated, and refined, our estate Pinot Gris is rich with aromas of white peach, alpine strawberry, and citrus flowers. A 24-hour cold soak, prior to whole-cluster pressing, imparted a subtle pink hue to this wine and produced a rich, balanced texture and a long finish, reminiscent of wet stone and spices.
