EVERGREEN RIESLING ANCIENT LAKES OF THE COLUMBIA AVA

RIESLING

EVERGREEN

ANCIENT LAKES OF THE COLUMBIA VALLEY AVA

Another stunning example of the dynamic Evergreen Vineyard, this Riesling takes its name directly from the vineyard we love so much. You may think you don’t enjoy Rieslings, but we have news for you – not all Rieslings are sweet. In fact, this unique wine is nearly dry with just a hint of residual sugar from vintage to vintage. Chalky minerality, mouthwatering, focused acidity balanced with aromas of honey flower, white peach, citrus oil, and orchard fruits. This wine begs to be paired with fine cheese plates, Thanksgiving dinner, or the spicy profiles of many Asian dishes.

PENELOPE

Named after one of the lovely Ferrelli Granddaughters. This Roussanne is sourced from a beautiful and peaceful block of Gamache Vineyards, on the Northeast part of the Columbia Valley AVA.

Sourced from the Clos CheValle Vineyard, tucked away overlooking beautiful Lake Chelan, these Chardonnay grapes are perfect for crafting a traditional method of sparkling wine.

Feral Sauvignon BlancFeral translates to “(especially of an animal) in a wild state.” This 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the Evergreen Vineyard truly is a wild animal. A play on our commitment to native or “wild” fermentation, this wine is a powerhouse of clean and focused flavors. Aromas of lime leaf, verbena, oyster shell and crushed stone nuanced by white peach, tangerine and linden flower explode from the glass. It hits the palate with a punch of persistent, mouthwatering acidity and finishes with inherent minerality. If you enjoy fresh shellfish, this wine will be a perfect match for dinner.

This very special rosé was first released in 2014, bringing you the first taste of our young estate vineyards. Set high on the slope in Grandview, Washington, our Oldfield Estate is producing Mourvedre and Grenache grown specifically for rosé. It is picked a little early to preserve acidity and then delivered cold straight to the press. It is left on the skins for just two hours, producing its signature wild salmon pink hue. This is a true representation of the roses you would find in the Provence region of France. It opens up with aromas of minerals, orange blossom, fresh-picked strawberry, and white watermelon. The body is full and creamy, yet crisp, with a silky texture and minerality.

Joe Taylor, youngest son of Angela and Kevin Taylor, is the inspiration behind this powerful wine. As EFESTE was ready to release our first vintage, Angela and Kevin got news that Joe, at the age of five, had been diagnosed with Leukemia. During the many visits to the doctors during treatment, Joe remained strong and determined to beat it, earning the nickname “Tough Guy” from his doctors. Thankfully, the treatments were effective, and Joe remains in remission today. After enduring this terrible challenge, the Taylor’s wanted to do their part to help find a cure. 20% of the sales of this wine go directly to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. A bold, powerful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Tough Guy displays dark fruit flavors with nuances of savory, earthy aromas.

Ceidleigh Syrah

During a trip to Australia’s wine regions, the family was impressed with the hospitality and stories of a server by the name of Ceidleigh. Pronounced kay-lee, spelled in the Gaelic traditional way and refers to a traditional Scottish or Irish social gathering with Gaelic folk music and dancing. Of the handful of 100% Syrah’s we produce, many consider this our “Goldilocks” Syrah. Exceptionally balanced, ripe red bramble fruit, hints of funky earthy notes and a rich full body. Perfect for grilling season.

In 2019 while visiting Stonetree vineyard, the beautiful site in Wahluke slope AVA where we grow the grapes for Paulie, the grower Tedd offered to show me the new vineyard he had just planted 3 years prior. It was just a couple of miles down the road, nestled away across an irrigation stream. I was immediately excited to work with him on a new wine. In your red and mix allocations, you’ll find the new EFESTE Malbec, I hope you all enjoy it as much as I love making it!

Every family has their own term of endearment - Nana, Nonna, Nonni, but no matter the pronunciation, this wine is a tribute to Grandmothers everywhere. In the EFESTE family, Nana was named in honor of Daniel Ferrelli’s Grandmother, Jenny Ferrelli. Styled after the traditional right bank Bordeaux region, it is a unique blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The key to this blend is the Cabernet Franc. Traditionally used as a blending tool, this varietal displays bright ruby color, and a tart mouthwatering acidity. When combined with the softer edges and baking spice qualities from the Merlot, it offers a warm and comforting personality. Just like Nana.
