2018 Weber Vineyard Pinot noir
As treasured fruit source since our first vintage in 2006, the Weber vineyard overlooks our Estate Tasting Room and was planted only two years after Winderlea by Arthur and Vivian Weber.
A classic example of the elegant 2018 vintage, the Weber has beautiful structure marked by violets, coriander, raspberry, black tea, mulled strawberries and rhubarb. Watermelon rind and cherry liqueur carry through to the long and mouthwatering finish.
AVA: Dundee Hills
Selections: 100% Pommard
Best Paired with: A casual cook out featuring grilled Italian chicken burgers and the first asparagus from the farmer’s market
2020 Bounteous Pinot noir
This expressive blend of Pinot noir is made of some of Winderlea’s most prized vineyard designate sites.
Bright and lively aromatics of Rainier and Bing cherries combined with earth and baking spice. This wine shows weight on the palate without feeling heavy. Add flavors of dark cherry, plum, black raspberry with hints of earth and cedar to this wine’s plush mouthfeel. While this wine is very approachable in its youth, fine tannins carry notes of cherry and dried herbs on this wine’s lengthy finish.
Vineyards: Shea, Winderlea and Worden Hill
Selections: Pommard, Dijon 667 & 115, Wädenswil
Best Paired With: Traditional Sunday supper and the long-awaited season finale of Succession
2019 Winderlea Chardonnay
Our Chardonnay is fermented in neutral oak and goes through slow, cool malolactic with the goal of retaining the character of the fruit while creating a rich and silky texture.
Lemon peel, chamomile, persimmon, pear and white flowers waft from the glass. A round palate of brioche, ripe apple, and mango are balanced with hints of oyster shells, grapefruit, sage and flintiness to keep the wine fresh. A round and delicately creamy finish.
Vineyards: Carabella, Meredith Mitchell, Winderlea
Selections: Dijon 76, 95 & Clone 548
Best Paired With: Ham and cheese croissants and hot cross buns for a stellar Easter brunch
