Mellisoni Vineyards Tasting Menu
2020 180 Degrees (Stainless steel) RS 0.5% Glass Pour $12 Bottle $45
100% Pinot Noir, this gorgeous pale pink Rose’ is reminiscent of a Chelan sunset. Light bodied, crisp and dry, and fruit forward with characteristics of ripe berries and mild citrus. This could be the wine of the summer, if you get it in time.
2020 Chardonnay (Stainless Steel) RS 0.7% Glass Pour $15 Bottle $50
Absolutely one of our favorites every year. We ferment 100% in stainless steel, so it’s fruit forward and interesting. This vintage shows the most gorgeous grapefruit element that makes even non Chardonnay fans say “I love that”.
2020 Riesling (Stainless steel) RS 1.5% Glass Pour $12 Bottle $40
Alsatian in style, this wine has great ageability. Incredible balance of residual sugar and acidity, this one is sure to sell rather quickly. White peach, honey and beeswax along with green apple round out the palate on this delight. We can’t wait to have this with prosciutto wrapped melon, but also gorgeous with crab dishes or scallops, or spicy Asian- style meals. Insider tip- also serve as a palate refresher with a big- flavored meal, truly welcoming and refreshing.
2018 Boateak Red (27 months French Oak) Glass Pour $15 Bottle $50
Opaque purple- red, this gorgeous 87% Merlot/ 13% Cab Sauvignon blend shows cocoa and mahogany, blueberry and cranberry, with a dusty earthiness and a soft violet and mint aspect. Medium tannins and body, along with a very smooth vanilla note finish. Pair this wine with Boeuf Bourguignon instead of Pinot. It will not disappoint!
2018 Cabernet Sauvignon (22 months French Oak) Glass Pour $18 Bottle $65
The worlds most popular grape, this vintage from Stillwater Creek Vineyard shows black cherry and dried currant with cedar and graphite, white pepper and baking spices along with bay leaf. Pair with grilled meats, steak au poivre or any rich dish. This wine can easily age for a decade plus. So enjoy between now and 2035!
2018 Malbec (22 months French Oak) Glass Pour $18 Bottle $60
Our 2018 Malbec is a deep clean red. Lightly sweet yet dark enough to challenge any food that comes up against it. It has a wonderfully clean finish that is slightly tannic. We have maintained the delicate hints of blackberry and ripe plum that so define this varietal. With a proper decant, this will have a slight aroma of cocoa. We love eating a classic spicy beef empanada with cotija and fresh diced jalapeno we wouldn’t complain.
