please join in the fun for an outstanding wine experience. mick + the family are in town for a visit to our PNW summer wonderland AND to share UNTI's much celebrated current releases with you.
as many of you know, we've grown quite fond of these wines over the years and been proud to offer them to you exclusively in seattle. what do we like so much about them? it's simple: they are authentically crafted, terroir driven, true to the varietal, AND fundamentally well balanced. these wines are made with an old world sensibility that the best domestic vintners strive for. we say, "grace in the glass" and with UNTI , as with all great wines, it all starts in the vineyard.
in their own words:
Dry Creek Valley’s climate is ideal for growing classic Mediterranean red grape varieties. When farmed for quality, these varieties show our favorite attributes in wines from this appellation: expressive fruit, ripe tannins and balanced acidity. We employ both modern techniques such as long pre-fermentation maceration, and traditional methods, such as whole cluster fermentation in open top tanks and using a basket press. We age our wines in only French oak barrels and foudres to highlight the aromatics and flavors derived from the vineyards. Dry Creek wines inspired by European counterparts.

• 2010 Cuvee Blanc
