Hello to you all!
We hope you are getting in the Spring spirit, and perhaps our news will help warm you up and think of sunshine and enjoying a bottle of wine or two! We wanted to let you know that the newest wines from Labor Wines are now being released! We are extremely excited for these and can’t wait to have you taste them.
We’d like to introduce our 2011 Pinot Noir (3rd vintage) and a first, our 2012 Riesling.
The 2011 Pinot Noir is the result of a very interesting vintage where it was extremely cool for almost all of the year, until the last month of harvest when the sun came out and temperatures were extremely moderate right before harvest, allowing a true integration of sugar and acid, resulting in a very balanced wine. On the nose you have a slight smoke and spice box, with red fruits and touch of creaminess with the integration of French oak and the juice, the true hallmark of our Pinot Noir. For this year’s Pinot Noir we produced 405 cases and are really happy with our steady growth as a winery.
Our 2012 Riesling is the second white we have made and this year we wanted to change it up a touch. The fruit we were able to source comes from vines between 35-38 years old, all from vineyards in the Yamhill-Carlton and Chehalem Mountain AVA’s, 100% stainless steel fermented and has been made in a dry style. This wine has dried apricots on the nose and a touch of pears; as it warms up the Riesling takes on a viscousness with fruit, acid and sugar extremely well balanced. This is an extremely small production wine, with only 112 cases made.
The Pinot Noir is available for $25.00 a bottle/$300.00 a case and the Riesling is $18.00 a bottle/$216.00 a case, both plus shipping. If you would like to get your hands on these wines, feel free to reach out to us via the website, email (Corey@LaborWines.com) or via phone, (855.503.9463).
As well, we are currently in the process of planning our Spring schedule for visits around the country. It’s looking like we are going to have a few wine dinners/events happening, starting with Las Vegas (May and June) and possibly New York City in June as well. Be on the lookout for us to visit Colorado with a potential Arizona trip too. If you’d like us to come to your city or have any ideas, drop us a line on our Facebook page or via Twitter and we’ll try to make it happen.
We look forward to catching up with each and every one of you soon and if you’re interested in some wine from the great state of Oregon, we can definitely make this happen!
Talk soon, all the best.
Everything takes Labor to accomplish. Labor Wines – A Labor of Love.
