CRUSH 8 Wines
The newest offering from Appellation Ventures
2017 Crush 8 Chardonnay
This Chardonnay has a brilliant golden straw color. The aroma has a blend of citrus and tropical notes that are vibrant and rich. The palate has creaminess and you will find characteristics of melon, citrus fruit, apples and a slight bit of tropical fruit on the nose that carries through to the finish. The wine has a crisp freshness from a good balance of acidity. This wine would be delicious with grilled halibut with grilled peached compote, Chinese chicken salad with fresh Mandarin oranges, or barbequed ham with a pineapple glaze.
2017 Crush 8 Zinfandel
The wine has a deep red apple color. The aromas are fruit forward with candied raspberry and strawberry mixed with darker fresh fruits and subtle vanilla undertones. The wine has a full body with flavors of bright red raspberry and cherry blended with jammy strawberry and a coco powder finish. The wine has several layers of fruit, soft tannin structure, and a long finish with balanced acidity. This wine would pair well with Peking duck with steamed buns, grilled sausage with peppers and onions on a French roll, or carnitas street tacos with caramelized onions and cilantro.
