2020 Cuvée Fredericka

Named after owner Fredericka Churchill, the 2020 Cuvee Fredericka is a rarity among California white wines. To make it we complement our Edna Valley Chardonnay with some of our more aromatic signature varietals: Dry Riesling and Dry Gewurztraminer. The result is a unique white wine with a pronounced complexity of flavors and structure.

In the nose, notes of tea leaves and white flowers lead to aromas of pumpkin spice and vanilla. On the palate, flavors of lime, caramel, and pear appear, yielding to a touch of cinnamon toast and apple pie on the finish. This wine would be a nice accompaniment to grilled halibut, oysters Rockefeller, spaghetti tutto mare, or a nice herb-roasted chicken.

Tasting notes

We created this unique blend some years ago to show how the richness of Chardonnay can blend seamlessly with the aromatics of our Riesling and Gewürztraminer, to the special delight of all white wine lovers. More than generous in aroma, this wine opens with scents of fresh pear and honeyed nuts. The citrus tones lean towards lime. Under the youthful charms lurk intriguing hints of minerality. The finish is clean and lovely, with lingering hints of golden delicious apple. You might pair this wine with Fettuccine Alfredo, Lobster Ravioli, or with shrimp pasta.
