Priam Vineyards White Blend Essence of St. Croix NV

Member Review by MTB:

Essence of St. Croix</a></strong> is the 2005 Vineyard Reserve St. Croix pressing. It's fashioned as a port-style wine, and aged for two years in oak barrels which help provide the depth, richness and smokiness that give this wine so much character. The nose has strong notes of spice and smoke and a touch of cherry. In the mouth, the wine is rich and deep with notes of cherry and blackberry that provide the sweetness one expects of dessert wines. This was hands-down my favorite wine of the tasting. This would pair exceptionally well with strong cheeses, perhaps even more so than it would with a sweet dessert.

The seasonally beautiful surroundings of the area offer a number of outdoor activities from hiking, fishing, canoeing and golf, to horse-back riding and cross-country skiing.Priam Vineyards' 40 acre farm has 24 acres of grapes in production, with a breathtaking 35 mile view of the New England countryside. We benefit from the unique microclimate of the hills of New London County, just 15 miles from Long Island Sound, where we grow classic European varietals: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay, Riesling, Muscat and Merlot as well as French-American hybrids: Cayuga and St. Croix. The rich gravelly soil mimics that of Graves, France. Our climate is very similar to the Alsation region of Northern France and Germany. This combination along with the sloping hillside and constant breeze provide the perfect climate for these varietals. Read less
