The experiment: Have the same winemaker use the same process and the same grape varietal from both Oregon and Idaho to compare the terroirs.
The result: Two distinct wines both reflecting their unique terroirs. The struggle, and great reward of making wine with Pinot Noir can be experienced in both wines. How to Pair? The wine stand alone well - Listening toVan Morrison’s “Into the Mystic” is strongly suggested.
Pack an old wicker picnic basket with some nutty Parmigiano-Reggiano. Include some tomato, basil and mozzarella topped bruschetta, a bottle of Summer Silhouette, and enjoy time reclining with your love on a soft blanket listening to the sounds of summer. Aromas of rhubarb, strawberry, pear and some floral notes are topped with scents of light vanilla. On the palate, one experiences ‘almost’ ripe strawberries with a very mild tannin structure.
The wine is named after the exquisite Glasswing Butterfly of Central America. Like the butterfly, this wine expresses unique beauty and gentle grace.
We age two styles of Glasswing Butterfly: Unoaked and French oak barreled. Chardonnay can be easily overpowered. Consider pairing with mild buttery dishes including clams, grilled fish, crab, or prawns. Also consider pairing with parmesan risotto or a light bruschetta dish.
Our estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon aged 2 years in French Oak accentuates the Sunnyslope terroir. Spicy chocolate notes and full body make this a pleasant addition to any dinner serving a variety of beef cuts such as a ribeye or a tomahawk.
Our Cabernet Sauvignon Rose´is a delightful descendant of our 2019 Love Letter Rose. Left on the skins for 9 hours, this fuller and dryer rose has a little sas.
Riesling grows exceptionally well in the Sunnyslope region. One of our best selling wines, our riesling provides a refreshing variation to the richer sweeter renditions.
