Celebrating Spring Wine Festival, Hester Creek is thrilled to release a new Rosé that comes from their famed Block Three Cabernet Franc vines. This 2012 vintage is 100% varietal Cabernet Franc Rosé. Not yet bottled or completely finished at time of this article, the wine is showing why the team is excited for its release! Luscious strawberry and raspberry excite as a balanced acidity and lingering finish promise to please Rosé lovers. Think of a charcuterie plate and local cheese with this wine. 500 cases available only at Hester Creek’s wine shop or Terrafina Restaurant.
The 2012 Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc are examples of consistently solid wines from a great vintage showing extremely clean fruit expression with very balanced acidity and mouthfeel. The Trebbiano continues its unique offering of fresh melon, slight steeliness and flint with a nice line of acidity balancing this slightly off dry customer favorite.
Spring Wine Festival is the kick-off to the summer season and Hester Creek leads the way with a cooking class on May 3rd with Director of Hospitality, Roger Gillespie, followed on May 4th with the Winemaker’s Dinner at Terrafina Restaurant with Winemaker, Rob Summers.
