Powers Chardonnay 2016

POWERS CHARDONNAY 2016

Description and Flavor Profile: With 2016 being a nice warm vintage with crisp cool nights, the Chrdonnay grapes came in with ripe fruit characteristics alongside a nice backbone of acidity in the mid to late September. The two components were fermented in stainless steel upright fermenters with PDM yeast on both lots. To retain the freshness in this Chardonnay, as is typical of our house style, we did not use any oak or send the wine through ML.

Bright aromatic notes of pineapple, melon, nectarine along with a touch of lemon grass and a hint of ginger make this wine expansive on the palate with wide range of flavors. Delicious ripe stone fruits, green apple and pear lead to an elegant finish with hints of orange zest and a nice touch of mineral and acid.

Pairing: Grilled chicken or fine rich fish such as turbot, grilled veal chops with mushrooms, Late summer vegetables such as red peppers, corn, butternut squash and pumpkin (pumpkin ravioli goes very well with this Chardonnay). Cheddar cheese. You can even drink this Chardonnay with seared foie gras.

POWERS VIOGNIER 2016

Description and Flavor Profile: With 2016 being another warm vintage in Washington State, Talcott Vineyard has again provided us with a nearly perfect balance of fruit character, pH, and acidity for our fourth bottling of Viognier. Following a harvest date of the 14th of September, we used Elegance yeast and fermented the Viognier in an upright stainless steel tank to provide a very focused wine with great aromatics and a bright finish.

Immediately engaging aromatics of mixed stone fruits with starfruit, lemon zest, and a touch of grated ginger. Nectarine and white peach slowly give way to a touch of mineral and lemongrass, offering flavors that are layered, bright, and slightly savory. This wine is very fresh and balanced on the palate with a beautiful mouthfeel and a refreshing touch of acidity on the dry finish.

Pairing: This beautiful white is delicate enough to pair with seafood, but can hold its own with wild game. The rich fruit and complexity of this wine make it a delightful aperitif wih an avocado and grapefruit salad, crab cakes or proscuitto-wrapped melon.

Powers Muscat Canelli 2016

POWERS MUSCAT CANELLI 2016

Description and Flavor Profile: Because of the delicate flavors and aromas, it is critical to harvest Muscat Canelli in the cool morning hours. Quickly pressed, chilled, and settled, the clarified juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks using the VL1 yeast. When it reaches the balance of acidity and sweetness we look for, fermentation is stopped by chilling the tank below the temperature where yeast can survive, thus leaving the right amount of natural sugar in the finished wine.

Fantastic aromatic layers of tangerine, ripe orange, melon and a slight touch of floral on the nose. This wine explodes with bright flavors of tangerine, fresh orange with a splash of citrus zest, and geraniums on the palate. This Muscat Canelli is a great marriage of fruit and acidity, with a nice bright finish.

Pairing: This Muscat is the ideal complement to many types of cuisine, especially ones on the spicy side, such as Pad Thai and other Thai dishes. The hot curry found in Indian cuisine also works well with this wine, as do grilled fruits. This wine also does great with Mexican Mole.

We chose Malbec because of its unique charactics and bright acidity, and made the wine in the traditional style, pressing off the skins after close to 9 hours of cold soa contact. With a harvest date of the 26th of Sept, the Malbec achieved the optimal ripness for the style of Rose? that we were looking for.
