Osage Innocence is a sweet Vignoles grown in our our vineyard in Westphalia, Missouri.
Renaissance Missouri Riesling was considered nearly extinct after virtually all vines were destroyed in 1919 at the onset of Prohibition. Westphalia Vineyards rediscovered a single vine, planted in 1890, at the National Agricultural Experimentation Center at Cornell University. In 2005 we started with 5 cuttings and have propagated this varietal to now over 500 healthy vines. We call this experiment "Renaissance," the rebirth of a native American grape varietal.
Due to a very small harvest caused by last year's devastating late frost, we will release only 100 cases for 2007. However, we expect this to rival our gold-medal winning 2006 Norton. This is a complex wine fermented and aged in Missouri oak barrels for 6 months.
Learning from our first Cabernet Franc experience last year, we anticipate this to be an exceptional wine, well balanced and with big berry tones. Cabernet Franc is a smooth red wine and is very popular in Bordeaux, France.
Maries River Red ––Our sweet table red is oak aged to impart a vanilla flavor. This year's MRR also has a hint of blackberry and cherry.
Prodigal Son ––A delicious Norton/Cabernet Franc blend, taking the best characteristics of both wines. Like the biblical parable,this wine has thrown itself on the mercy of the father (our winemaker and Dad, Terry), who rather than asking repentance celebrates its membership in our family of wines. Suggested pairing: a fatted calf.
Riesling Sweet ––Our first efforts at this noble varietal, our Riesling is indicative of our German heritage. True to the varietal, it has a flowery bouquet and lush peach and apple flavors.
Riesling Semidry ––Similar to our sweet Riesling, but fermented to 1.5% residual sugar. A delicious counterpart to our family of Rieslings, for those who like a drier white.
Anna Rosé ––A Riesling-based Rosé, sure to be a conversation piece.
