Bonny Doon Gravitas White Blend 2015

Bonny Doon Gravitas White Blend 61% Semillon, 35% Sauvignon Blanc, 4% Gewürztraminer

The nose has the haunting perfume of magnolia flowers and scent of white peaches, with suggestions of ripe Bosc Pear, sweet green grass, exotic saffron and a touch of lavender honey. But wait, there’s more: A bit of bergamot orange blossom, jasmine, and key lime custard, quince and Madagascar vanilla. These aromas are echoed on the palate adding a light, deft, fresh acidity; a savory wine, perfect with all manner of seafood and lighter entrées.

Pairs with oysters, cassoulet, grilled veggies. Staff favorites include blackened fish tacos - or if you're feeling fancy, lobster tacos!

Vitas Pinot Grigio Friuli 2017

Vitas Pinot Grigio Friuli is 100% Pinot Grigio 

Straw yellow color with elegant copper-gold overtones.
Elegant and intense bouquet with hints of acacia flowers, dry hay, walnut kernel, yellow peach and golden apple, intertwined with fresh and mineral notes. The palate is well-structured, mineral and flavorful. The alcoholic and fresh note gives the wine a pleasant consistency on the finish.

This variety has French origins, but it has been cultivated in Friuli since the second half of the 18th century where it has found an ideal habitat to reach excellent results. Manual harvest, gentle pressing of the grapes, alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature (18°C) to enhance the typical flavors of the variety. Aged in stainless steel tanks with a daily pumping over of the must to prevent the clarification. The wine stays on the lees until bottling, then ages in the bottle for an addition 3 months.

Vitas Chardonnay 2014

Straw yellow color with greenish overtones, intense and warm aromas of citrus, pineapple and peach., Full-bodied palate sustained by a acidic grip and a hint of mineral presence. Well-balanced and velvety on the finish.

The grapes are hand-harvested towards the end of August and beginning of September and gently whole-cluster pressed. The free-run juice is kept separate from the press fraction and allowed to cold settle prior to alcoholic fermentation at 18°C. The young wine remains in tank on its lees, with periodical stirring until bottling.

Pairs with lean hors-d'oeuvres and entrees, delicate soups, fish and cream cheese.

Product Description

Intense and persistent bouquet, delicate and aromatic with a pleasant background note of sweet spices. Dry and aromatic palate, tasty and fragrant with a velvety consistency.

Hand harvesting during the cool morning hours to maximize aroma preservation. Whole-cluster pressing to avoid juice oxidation and separation of juice fractions according to different pressure gradients, followed by a 36-48 hours cold settling at 12°C. The juice is inoculated with selected yeast strains and fermented at 18°C. The wine remains for several months in tank on its lees, which are periodically stirred.

Pairs with fish, shellfish, asparagus and pumpkin dishes, fresh cheese.

Winery: Vitas

The Vitas Estate
The winery has been in the family since 1935, for four generations. It is located in the wine-producing area of DOC Friuli Aquileia, on a clayey-marly and sandy-calcareous soil (the so-called Magredi), one of the ingredients which, together with the influence of the sea, a friendly sun, an average temperature of 14° and the absence of night frosts, create a perfect microclimate for vine-growing.
