Mellisoni Vineyards Tasting Menu
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 Three Bastards (Stainless steel) RS 1.3% – Glass Pour $12 Bottle $35
Three Bastards is a perennial Mellisoni fan favorite. Wildly popular always, but we believe this is our best vintage ever! Spectacular clarity of color, this fun blend of Roussanne, Viognier and Chardonnay presents with banana, and stone fruit, primarily ripe peach, and a little note of jasmine..
2019 Merlot (11 months French Oak JABB) – Glass Pour $15 Bottle $55
Just when we thought we’d hit our stride with Merlot….along comes 2019. This merlot is very delicate and soft on the finish. Grapes are grown on the Royal Slope AVA at Stillwater Creek Vineyards.
2017 Best Friends (22 months French Oak) (70% Sangiovese, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon) – Glass Pour $35 Bottle $125
Ricetta perfetta! A gorgeous blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Our 2017 has a hint of summer berry, vanilla with a dark cherry finish. This superb red continues to be a wine club favorite. Wonderfully easy to pair. Drinkable but complex enough to be appreciated by any wine lover.
2018 Boateak Red (22 months French Oak) (87% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon) – Glass Pour $15 Bottle $50
Opaque purple-red, this gorgeous 87% Merlot/13% Cabernet 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.
2020 180 Degrees (Stainless steel) RS 0.5% – Glass Pour $15 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 your summer, if you get it in time!
