Charles Smith Washington State 2015 Riesling, Chardonnay and Syrah

29-Dec-2017

Charles Smith is a self-taught Washington State American winemaker who began masking wine in the Walla Walla Valley in 2001 releasing 330 cases of a 1999 vintage Syrah. Charles developed his passion for wine during his years of wining and dining whilst on the road managing rock bands and concert tours. He created the ‘House Wine’ brand which was sold to Precept Wines in 2006, and in that year created ‘Charles Smith Wines’ themed as ‘The Modernist Project’ which focusses on making wines that show variety and vineyard, and are ready to be enjoyed immediately on release. The names of the wines are designed to be memorable, and the striking labelling designed by friend Rikke Korff, who has also advised on other visual aspects of the ‘Charles Smith Wines operation. www.charlessmithwines.com The wines are distributed in New Zealand by Constellation Brands. I find them of a consistent high quality across the varietals, each with points of interest
