NEW RELEASE & WHITE WINE CLUBS
The Columbia Valley is home of the most prestigious wineries in Washington state. The valley benefits from a natural rain shadow from the Cascade Mountains, which limits precipitation. It is located at 46 to 47 degrees latitude (the same as Bordeaux and Burgundy), with two hours more of sunlight than California. These long hot days in summer, followed by cool nights, ensure a long growing season, and peak phenol and flavor balance in the grapes grown there. Lynfred’s 2020 vintage Sauvignon Blanc is made from 100% Ancient Lakes AVA of Columbia Valley grapes.
Lynfred Brand Ambassador, Laura Lorenz, took one taste of this Sauvignon Blanc and knew it would be gorgeous with goat cheese. Laura has created a fried goat cheese salad that pairs perfectly with our Washington-grown Sauvignon Blanc.
RED WINE CLUB
Norton is among only a few grapes native to North America. Norton is also a common grape grown here in the Midwest due to its ability to adapt to a variety of weather conditions, its durability, and its resistance to disease.
Chambourcin, a French-American hybrid variety, is winter hardy and typically produces wines that are rich in color and juice acidity on the palate, but lighter in body and less robust than the average red varieties. Blending both ‘Illinoisan’ varieties and adding the finesse of a long aging in American oak barrels, we were able to highlight the unique characteristics of the Midwest wine grape growing region.
Norton & Chambourcin both are extremely food-friendly wines, particularly when paired with tomatoes, sausage or meat. Lynfred Brand Ambassador, Laura Lorenz, created this homey, yet elevated, Short Rib Ragu, that brings out the fruit and elegance of this wine.
