2015 Charles Vineyard Semillon / A Perfect Holiday Wine/FourSight Wines of Anderson Valley
We have found your turkey wine...A special wine from Foursight Wines.All their wines are estate,and this one is amazing.Known for Anderson valley Pinot Noirs,Foursight Wines is a small, family owned and operated winery in the cool, coastal region of Anderson Valley. Founded in 2006 by Bill and Nancy Charles - long-time winegrowers - together with daughter Kristy Charles and husband Joseph Webb, we craft small lots of estate-grown Pinot Noir, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc each year. Our name - Foursight Wines - signifies both the number of generations of our family to live and work on this one piece of land in Anderson Valley, and the aim of our efforts: to look forward and provide for the future generations of our family. Each and every day you will find one of us working in the vineyard, tasting our wines, or tending to the day-to-day tasks of the business. We believe that good wine is made in the vineyard, and, in the best years, no intervention at all is needed to produce the highest-quality, small-lot wines.This small family winery has produced a couple very good white wines also.Let's check out the tasting notes and also figure out where we are going for our great food and wine pairing today. Charles Vineyard Semillon The 2015 Semillon is estate-grown and -produced, and with only a handful of wineries in California crafting a stand-alone Semillon, it's fairly unique. Aged in a combination of French oak barrels (20% new) and stainless steel, this crisp, food-friendly wine is great year-round. It was fermented with wild yeast and wild ML strains, then bottled unfined and unfiltered. The hint of toasty oak balances the crisp stonefruit and minerality -- perfect for pairing with seafood with butter and lemon, cream sauce pastas, or a cheese platter at a summer picnic. We also have opened their 2016 Charles Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc . The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc balances beautiful stonefruit in the bouquet with that crisp, refreshing quality that we love for food pairing or simply enjoying on a sunny day. We harvested estate-grown fruit in the cool of the morning, then pressed it in our traditional, wooden basket press. This wine was fermented with wild yeast and wild ML strains, and aged in a combination of stainless steel and older French oak barrels. The 2016 vintage offered a nice, even growing season and the Sauvignon. Casually elegant with an upscale feel, Stark’s Steak & Seafood serves up classic fare with a modern approach. Stark’s features sustainable seafood, Certified Angus Beef® brand, Prime and Natural, in-house dry-aged beef, and American Kobe.
