This fresh, crisp Pinot Gris estate wine is fermented and aged entirely in stainless steel after hand-harvesting and sorting in the vineyard. This Pinot Gris tastes of lemon – citrus – pear – apple – with a hint of minerality. Pairs well with lighter dishes, like seafood and chicken.
This Chardonnay, made from 100% estate grown grapes, started alcoholic fermentation in a stainless steel tank. Toward the middle of fermentation, 80% of the juice was transferred into French burgundy barrels to finish the fermentation, while the other 20% remained in stainless. This Chardonnay has some creaminess to it but also a fresh crispness. Pairs well with rich dishes, cream sauces, salmon, pasta and many types of cheeses. Winner of a Silver Medal at the 2016 San Francisco International Wine Competition & a Silver Medal at the 2016 International Women's Wine Competition
This Rosé blend, consisting of 76% Cabernet Franc & 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, was made with both the direct pressing method (60%) and bleeding method (40%). Fermented and aged entirely in stainless steel, this Rosé is crisp and fresh with a long floral nose.
After 2 days of cold maceration, the alcoholic fermentation was started and occurred around 75 degrees F to keep a fruity style and to not extract harsh tannins. This wine was then aged for 8 months partially in French oak barrels and partially in stainless steel tanks. Ruby red color with fresh fruit aromas, this medium-body wine pairs well with lighter meats, poultry, pork, barbecue, salads, pastas and fresh or hard cheeses. Winner of a Gold Medal at the 2016 International Women's Wine Competition, a Silver Medal at the San Francisco International Wine Competition & a Silver Medal at the 2016 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition.

This Bordeaux style red wine was aged for 16 months in French oak barrels and is a blend of 38% Cabernet Franc, 32 % Merlot, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2% Petit Verdot. The label includes a photograph taken by family relative Fletcher Slater of the first bridge that you cross over Goose Creek when traveling from our farm to Rectortown Road, where the livestock depot was historically located.
