Tucked away in Amenia, New York is Cascade Mountain Winery. I actually visited this winery this past winter and tucked away is right. Beautiful property and views.
This Private Reserve White is a bottle I took home with me after my visit. Unfortunately, there is no vintage on the label, so that leads me to believe it’s a mixture of different vintages. I do know, it’s a blend of Chadonnay and Seyval.
The nose had some citrus notes, followed by honeydew melon and some sweet flowering aroma of white flowers. A distant hint of oak was detected on the palate. The wine was soft with a hint of sweetness, pineapple and tart apple. The tart apple left a strange finish.
This wine sells in their tasting room for $15.
