The inspiration for 14 Hands wines recalls a time when wild mustangs roamed freely on the hills of eastern Washington State. This unique and beautiful landscape that gave these unbridled horses their spirit and tenacity now feeds their vines. This Chardonnay offers bright aromas of apples and pears with a touch of caramel and spice. Elegant fruit flavours give way to hints of butter and vanilla, ending with a juicy, fresh finish.
Of a pale yellow color with golden glimmers and high aromatic intensity, where pleasant fruit bouquets outstand, such as pineapple and green apple, giving then way to its characteristic floral notes such as white jasmine and at the ending, a slight honeyed sensation. In mouth it presents an incredible acidity, good body and freshness. Its citric fruity side, dry and with long ending, outstands.
High in natural acidity and bone dry, this wine is fresh and bright with intense smells of lime skin, citrus blossom, green apple, ripe guava and cinnamon spice.

Eroica is a labour of love for two of the world's great Riesling producers, Germany's Dr Loosen and Washington State's Chateau Ste. Michelle. Named after Beethoven's Third Symphony, Eroica reflects not only its variety and site, but also its heritage: bold and forward from its Washington roots, elegant and refined from German inspiration. This Riesling offers sweet lime and tangerine aromas with subtle mineral notes, and a mouth-watering acidity that is beautifully balanced by the generously fruity Washington grapes.
A more old world style wine with more texture and complexity compared to the pure styles of Riesling we make for the Framingham bottling. A little bit of extra hang time on our oldest vines, hand harvested, bunch pressed with no juice clarification, fermented with uninoculated yeasts and left on lees for 11 months prior to bottling. Harmless crystals may form in the bottle.
Light gold in colour, Manna Cru is a perfectly balanced blend combining depth and texture, perfume and body to produce a crisp, lively wine with tremendous length and character. Heady perfumes of lychees and ripe citrus fruit mingle with butter and freshly cut grass which give way to a lovely mineral quality on the palate. Long and perfumed on the finish.
