Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard Winery
has just released its 2013 Chardonnay on April 5 and we are happy to be offering a glass of this new achievement in vinting. We opened the first bottle last night during our live music with Max Honn and friends. An amazing hue of light straw yellow greets your visual senses followed by aromas of oak, green apple, tropical fruit, and lemon and and tastes of butter, vanilla, nuts on the palate. This medium-bodied wine has great mouthfeel and exhibits great balance between fruit and oak. The oak does not overpower the fruit and the entire experience is harmonious. Please come in for a celebration of 2013 in wine making. The 2013 SMV is bound to win a number of awards in competitions this year – we’ll keep you posted!
If you prefer red, we are still serving the 2011 harvest of Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard Winery’s Cabernet COMUS. In Greek mythology, Comus is the god of revelry and merriment. The 2011 Comus is a splendid Bordeaux blend with a bright garnet hue. Rich medium bodied wine, well balanced with flavors of plums, blackcurrant, minerals, and hints of spice that combine harmoniously with medium toast French oak. The wine finishes strong with suggestion of earthy and roast coffee notes. Comus was a Double Gold winner in the International Eastern Wine Competition in 2009.
In 2013 it received eight awards such as
Best in Show: 2013 Maryland Winemaster’s Choice Awards
Best of Class: Bordeaux Style Red Blend – 2013 International Eastern Wine Competition
Gold Medalist: 2013 Maryland Winemaster’s Choice Awards
Gold Medalist: 2013 International Eastern Wine Competition
Silver Medalist: 2013 Maryland Governor’s Cup Competition
Silver Medalist: 2013 Atlantic Seaboard Wine Competition
Silver Medalist: 2013 U.S. National Wine Competition
Silver Medalist: 13th Annual Finger Lakes International Wine Competition
While the vineyard still looks like a barren place right now, SMV Winery expects buds breaking out on the vines end of the month to early May and will celebrate with a Budbreaking Event on May 3 and 4.
