2012 Chardonnay - $28
Our 2012 Chardonnay is simply a delight. This is Pondera's third vintage for Chardonnay and this one is arguably our best and easily our favorite thus far. Everything came together in 2012 from perfect weather to perfect grapes. An expressive nose full of vibrant lime, mango and lemon peel starts the parade of flavors and stone fruits and ripe honeydew melon join in to add even more charm. Skilled winemaking and restrained use of oak prevents this wine from being heavy or over the top. Well balanced, with good structure and acidity this Chard's a fantastic choice to pair with chicken, shellfish or seafood. It's ready to enjoy now, but will gain even greater depth and complexity over the next several years. Our 2011 Chardonnay is now sold out and was rated Gold at last year's Seattle Wine Awards and in the top three at the Golden Grape Awards.
2012 Rosé - $15
We are proud to be part of the Rosé revolution that is currently sweeping across the
American palate. This marks our third Rosé release and it's gonna make you smile!
Dry, delightful and delicious are the three standards we set for making our Rosé. A proprietary blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, it's a bottle full of sliced watermelon, ripe strawberries and fresh floral flavors. By far one of the most versatile of wines, Rosé treads fearlessly into the kitchen, pairing nicely with both white or red wine foods. And of course, it's always great as a summer sipper. Meant to be enjoyed on release and over the next year, we think you're going to love our 2012 Rosé.
Hours: Friday 3-7pm, Saturdays and Sundays from 12 - 5pm.
