The Albarino is similar to a Sauvignon Blanc, without the grassy notes on it. It is much more citrus driven and is a bright, zesty wine with hints of lemon and refreshing citrus flavors.
The Albariño is the premier white wine in Spain, grown primarily in the Rías Baixas, in Galicia. These grapes thrive in misty, cool climates.
Suggested pairings: Albariño pairs well with seafood, i.e. white fish, seafood, grilled vegetables, citrus/high acidity foods. Grapes grown at Grandview Vineyard.

Suggested pairing: rich foods with higher fat content, buttery/nutty or cream sauces, Salmon, seafood with butter, grilled chicken.
Grapes grown at Grandview Vineyard. Fermented and aged/stirred on the lees in oak barrels (mostly French oak) for approximately 9 months.
Lees refers to deposits of dead yeast or residual yeast and other particles that precipitate to the bottom of the barrel after fermentation and aging. Normally the wine is transferred to another container (racking) leaving this sediment behind. Some wines (notably chardonnay) are sometimes aged for a time on the lees (a process known as sur lie) leading to a distinctive yeasty aroma and taste. The lees were stirred every 2 weeks in order to promote uptake of the lees' flavor (toasty, nutty “hazelnut” quality and gives additional depth and complexity to the wine).
2016 Grand Rouge
Dry Red, Dry 0% sugar, 13.1% alcohol
Our flagship estate wine. Dark and jammy fruit-like scents fill the nose on this big wine, packed with elegance and bold notes of black current, cocoa/mocha on the tongue with hints of pepper. The Grande Rouge has soft tannins throughout and is an overall very pleasing dry red. A blend of 48% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot.
Suggested pairing: Higher fat content meats, such filet mignon, beef brisket, pork, dark meat turkey.
Aged 21-22 months in French oak barrels.
Awards: The 2013 Grande Rouge was submitted to San Fran National Wine Competition and won a double gold. This means that all judges voted unanimously for it to get a Gold Medal. Grandview was the 1st winery east of the Mississippi to win this award in the Bordeaux category in over a decade and, according to their website, it has only ever happened one other time in the 36 years of holding the competition!
