Crush Club Whites ready to bottle in September

July 30, 2012

Although it is not harvest season yet, it is most definitely bottling season for our first whites from fresh Washington State grapes. This is an exciting time as we get to take a sneak peak at the 2011 varieties we made in October. Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay were the ones we chose for this year and we’re sorry we didn’t bring in a little Gewurztraminer but…there is always next harvest. It is coming fast.

Things are looking very, very promising as all styles are already quite palatable. Given the additional year of age that is recommended for these wines I think everyone will be super happy with the fruits of our labours.

As always we are having our label design contest. Deadline for submissions is August 19th in .pdf format. White Crush Clubbers will vote on their favourites and the winning label will be printed and go on all the wine bottles.

Last year’s winner was Chad Parent with his Kits Krush design.

You could be next.
