Wine Varieties – Buckingham Winery

Cabernet Sauvignon

 

A medium bodied Red Wine that is completely dry. Our Cab Sav spends a year on oak chips then ages for an additional 3-4 years in stainless steel. We blend vintages for a consistent taste. Tasting notes are dark fruit, such as blackberry, raspberry and currant with a balanced tannin profile. The nose has hints of leather and oak chips. Pairs well with Steaks, Grilled Meats and of course Saturday Nights. Serve room temp, 65 degrees. 12.5ALC.

Merlot

 

Oak aged, dry red

Chancellor

 

Light bodied French Hybrid, similar in style to a Pinot Noir

Chambourcin

 

A full bodied earthy red, French Hybrid

Rose

 

With everyone drinking Rose today, we decided to make ours in the style of Southern France. Very light in color and delicate in taste. Being an almost dry Rose you will get notes of Rose pedals, ripe strawberries and wildflowers. Rose is perfect all by itself. Pairs best with Seafood and grilled vegetables. ALC 11.5

Diego Red

 

Diego Red is our flagship wine, it has turned weekend visitors into lifetime customers. This light bodied semi sweet red is a delicious all purpose table wine. Easy to drink room temp or chilled and makes a great gift for wine loving friends. This wine is very fruit forward with jammy ripe fruit notes. The touch of sweetness brings it all together for an enjoyable glass every time. Pairs well with Chinese food, grilled foods, pastas and even pizza. It’s a perfect backyard fire pit wine! 11.5 ALC

Pinot Gris

 

Off dry white, with slight citric undertones

Chardonnay

 

Our Chardonnay is not like your typical “California oaky, buttery wine”. We age our Chardonnay wine for just about a year in stainless steel tanks and skip the oak! What you get from steel tanks is a wine that’s crisp and refreshing. The nose is very fragrant of honey suckle and apple. Pairs best with grilled chicken, grilled pork and veggie burgers. Enjoy chilled with friends. ALC 11.5

Seyval Blanc

 

Off dry, light white, with peachy undertones

Vidal Blanc

 

Dry white, crisp with citrus undertones

Riesling

 

This semi sweet white wine is made in the traditional German style. Aging for a year in stainless steel tanks, it retains all of the ripe fruit characteristic. The nose is sweet and floral, ripe pear and lychee fruit are typical notes. Pairs with spicy foods and can be enjoyed with fresh fruit as a dessert. Serve chilled ALC 11.5

Add this to a bowl of ice cream with fresh strawberries! ALC 12
