  • Tyee

    • Overview

    • Tasting Notes

    • Pale straw color with aromas and flavors of ripe Bartlett pear, golden delicious apple and brioche best describe the Tyee. Finished as a Brut, the sugar acid balance is spot on. Not to tart, not too sweet. Juuuuust right. The mouthfeel is crisp, full and satisfying. Best enjoyed with those ripe sheep or cow’s milk cheeses possessing a little bit of funk such as a triple cream brie, Chaource or a nice tangy blue. Cheese not your thing, try with lox, spot prawns or a yummy crab cake. A rich – cheesy mushroom risotto also seals the deal. All in all, our Tyee is a very nice bottle of bubbly!

      • Sparkling
      • $30 - $50
      • Lake Chelan
  • Cardinal

    • Overview

    • Tasting Notes

    • If the notes for this sparkling wine mirror that of the Tyee sparkler it is not coincidence. The Cardinal sparkling wine is the rose’ version of our Tyee. A pale salmon – pink color begins the presentation. Warm brioche, ripe Anjou pear, peach, golden delicious apple and juicy strawberries flesh out the aroma – flavor profile. Finished as a Brut, the sugar acid balance is not to tart, not too sweet. The mouthfeel is crisp and juicy. Best enjoyed with ripe sheep or cow’s milk cheeses possessing a little bit of funk such as a triple cream brie or Chaource. A savory mushroom –cream sauced strudel topped with some Crater Lake Blue crumble pairs exceedingly well too. Need I go on? Our Cardinal is a lovely bottle of rose’ bubbly!
