Winemaker Anke Wildman Notes
Anke Freimuth Wildman comes from a family of winemakers in Germany. She studied at Geisenheim and came to the US as an intern. Her mentor was Walter Clore, the pioneer of Washington Wine. Her internship was with Hogue Cellars where she continued to make wine after graduating from univewrsity. She has been making wine in the Yakima Valley for over 20 years and is the recipient of many awards.

These grapes were destemmed and gently crushed followed by a cold soak at 10degrees C for 2-3 days. All lots were fermented in 1 ton bins with daily manual punch downs. This wine expresses lovely floral aromas of rose and violet mingled with spice and nutmeg. Ripe flavors of cherry and blackberry are layered with hints of herbs and vani ...more... lla leading to a finish full of chocolate and cherry flavors. Plenty of lively natural acidity means this wine will age beautifully.
