Telaya has two new wines for our 2016 Fall Release!
One is a new vintage of an old favorite. Our 2014 Petit Verdot follows the old-world style that Telaya’s known for. This wine tastes like an old French wine with structure and balance, along with an unexpected splash of bright fruit on the front. This wine can be experienced by itself or with food- and would be great for Thanksgiving Dinner. It’s also from a great Idaho vineyard about a half hour from the winery, Sawtooth Vineyard.
Our second wine is a first-time stand-alone varietal for Telaya. The 2015 Marsanne is an explosion of diesel and pie crust. Marsanne is typically used as a blending varietal, but we were lucky enough to get some exceptional fruit that translated into a fantastic single-varietal wine. This Idaho wine is truly a winter white, with enough body and mouth-feel to hold its own on a brisk Idaho evening next to the fireplace. Also a great pairing with Thanksgiving dinner this dynamic white came from another amazing vineyard, Boushey Vineyard.
You can come try our new releases at the tasting room in Garden City between noon and 6PM. If you’re still trying to figure out what to do with all that family that’s visiting for Thanksgiving remember our Thanksgiving Barrel Tasting is a great time to drink fantastic wine with the in-laws!
