2019 Winderlea Rosé of Pinot noir

350 cases produced

Our first release from the 2019 vintage welcomes back our beloved Rosé of Pinot noir. This lush and layered wine has aromatics that burst from the glass. Juicy watermelon, strawberry, and wild raspberry leap out and are followed by dried fig and a touch of salinity. The palate is broad and energized with orange peel and an intriguing note of cardamom. Pithy peach, nectarine and salted plum give this wine depth and just the right amount of phenolic structure.

2019 Winderlea Meredith Mitchell Pinot blanc

209 cases produced

Buy Now The Meredith Mitchell Vineyard Pinot blanc is our unique take on this Alsatian classic. The aromatics show depth and layered complexity. A hint of barrel leads immediately to notes of grapefruit and papaya, with an underlying briny character. The palate has weight without being heavy, gliding from flavors of kiwi fruit to persimmon and nougat. The flavor lingers, the finish is long, and the wine is undeniably striking.

2018 Winderlea Dundee Hills Vineyards Pinot noir

505 cases produced

An homage to our neighbors and friends, the Dundee Hills Vineyards Pinot noir carries the original name of our estate and is an approachable and drinkable Pinot, focused and full, with firm but integrated tannins. The color is dense and penetrating blackberry, and the aromatics practically burst from the glass. There is ample potential for cellaring but it is so tasty now, it might not last that long.

Ripe peach, macerated lemon, strawberry, and lime zest burst from the glass to meet notes of watermelon, creamy pear, cantaloupe, and lime zest.
