Martinez was founded in 1790 by Spaniard Sebastian Gonzalez Martines who sold Port, Sherry, and Cigars in London. By 1849 The Martinez company was the largest shipper of Port to the UK. Port is generally made from these top five black varieties, although over 80 varieties are allowed: Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo), Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franc, Tinta Cao, and Tinta Barroca.
2014 Estate Red Mountain Kiona Vineyards and Winery - Chenin Blanc Ice Wine 375 ml
Manufacturer: Kiona Vineyards and Winery
Brand: Kiona Vineyards and Winery
We pick these Red Mountain Chenin Blanc grapes during a deep freeze in order to coax the concentrated juice needed for a dessert wine of this caliber. This involves monitoring vineyard temperatures deep into the night and picking at the right time to ensure optimal flavor and sugar extraction. Kiona is an Indian word that means brown hills. The family owned winery helped pioneer the Washington wine industry when it planted some of the area's first vines in 1975. Two proud generations of winemaking and viticultural excellence are captured in this outstanding wine.
Our 2013 Muscat Canelli was harvested at an optimal maturity of 30 brix which produces a delightfully fruity wine with floral aromas of ripe peaches and apricots. It is wonderfully refreshing with flora aromas of ripe grapefruit and lemon pound cake-an extraordinary combination of sweetness and crisp balance with 12.5% residual sugar. Pair with spicy dishes, peppery sauces or a light dessert. Serve Chilled!
