  Albemarle Rosé
Our traditional French-style rosé is an exciting blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This wine bursts with romance, passion and the flavor of the land. The color is a clear and firm pinkish-raspberry tint. There are floral nuances of fresh berries, white peach, cherry and raspberry with delicate licorice, vanilla and roasted almond notes.
  Albemarle Simply Red
Albemarle Simply Red is a Bordeaux-style blend made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Tinted a brilliant, intense ruby red, the wine exhibits soft tannins, medium density with a complex mineral expression. There are nuances of blackberry, black currant with delicate licorice, vanilla smoky and spicy notes. A nice, balanced wine with finesse and persistance that is best when served at approximately 65 F, Simply Red is an ideal companion for appetizers like beef carpacio, baked brie, salads, pizza, French-American cuisine and with cheeses. It is a distinctive wine to have on hand for a family dinner or to share with friends as a pleasant American red.
  Albemarle Viognier
Made in the Condrieu style, this wine is 100% Viognier and was aged for 8 months in 100% French oak barrels of varying ages. The result is a beautiful sphere of complex aromas and flavors: floral and mature exotic fruits on the nose and palate; a balance of ripe and dried apricots, notes of guava, lychee, and spicy flower perfumes blend with light smokiness, vanilla, and fresh tobacco from the French oak.
  Kluge Estate Cru
Best when served very cold or on the rocks, this refreshing and strong chardonnay aperitif can be served before dinner or following the meal with dessert. It is an unexpected and well-received accompaniment.
  Kluge Estate New World Red
This Bordeaux-style blend is made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. It is smooth, round and soft, with notes characterized by toasted oak, currant and black cherry. The finish delivers a flourish of mocha and coffee. The wine’s seductive harmony makes it the ideal accompaniment for beef, duck, pheasant and other game birds that can stand up to the boldness of its character. These dishes work best with the wine when prepared with sweet sauces that incorporate dense, sweet flavors, such as raisin, as well as those with rich, earthy aromas like mushroom.
  Kluge Estate SP
The first sparkling white wine from Kluge Estate, made with Chardonnay grapes in the traditional méthode Champenoise style, is a classical French blanc de blanc. Loaded with tiny, effervescent bubbles, SP is an energetic brut. In addition to being a favorite cocktail and celebratory drink, our New World sparkling wine pairs very well with Asian-inspired food (the fresh sweetness of the fruit balances with the spiciness of the meal). It is also excellent with chocolate and sweets .
  Kluge Estate SP Blanc de Blancs
This methode Champenoise sparkling wine is made from Kluge Estate’s best Chardonnay grapes. The vibrant Chardonnay aromas are focused and complex, exhibiting notes of ripe apple and pear with hints of hazelnut and roasted almond. The wine is medium-bodied with a creamy, finely-beaded mouthfeel and a clean, zesty finish.
  Kluge Estate SP Blanc de Noir
Kluge SP Blanc de Noir is a brut made in the classic methode traditionelle. The richness of Pinot Noir is balanced with delicate fruit and refreshing acidity. Aging the wine 24 months on its lees lends a mild nutty and toasty notes to the varietal’s citrus, strawberry, and cassis flavors. A very versatile wine, SP Blanc de Noir can enliven an array of savory, spicy, and sweet dishes. It is excellent with seafood and shellfish.
  Kluge Estate SP Reserve
This limited edition wine will not last long! Made in the methode traditionelle and aged for over 36 months to gain complexity, this wine is special. The vibrant Chardonnay aromas are focused and complex, exhibiting ripe apple and pear character with notes of hazelnut, roasted almonds and brioche. SP Reserve has a luxurious body and a creamy, finely beaded mouth feel. The finish delivers a clean and zesty aftertaste. This wine’s elegance and finesse make it the perfect accompaniment for seafood, especially sushi, oysters and shrimp.
  Kluge Estate SP Rosé
SP Rose, a vibrant salmon hue, exhibits complexity from aging on the lees for 21-24 months. To complement the wine's freshness, a very low dosage was added at disgorging. The result is a fruity and floral nose, a sensuous body, and delightful flavors – notes of cherry, rose petal, and raspberry, with a touch of toast.
