    Winemaker Notes

    The Tomasello Atlantic County Niagara is made from the Native American varietal of the same name. Most tasters describe this wine as "a bunch of fresh grapes". Niagara has forward fruit in both nose and taste and is finished a bit sweet. Often served with dessert.

    Tomasello Winery, Washington
    Image of winery
    Tomasello Winery is a small third-generation family Winery founded in 1933. Currently, the Winery produces over thirty different wines from grapes it grows on seventy acres. Its traditional wines include an Atlantic County Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Chambourcin and Villard Noir as well as Never Oak Chardonnay to name a few. These Regional wines have garnered a number of awards and medals and are currently available in selected markets.

    The Winery is perhaps best known, however, for the ”Tomasello Fruit Wine Portfolio”, a line of 100% naturally fermented fruit wines (Red Raspberry, Blackberry, Blueberry, Cranberry and Cherry) which are sold throughout the US and exported to a number of foreign countries. These wines are intense in their fruit character and are used as dessert wines, reduced in the sauté pan for entrée sauces, incorporated into baking recipes, in mixed drink concoctions and in kirs with sparkling wines.

    Washington

    An important winegrowing state increasingly recognized for its high-quality reds and whites, Washington ranks second in production in the U.S. after California. Washington wines continue to gain well-deserved popularity as they garner higher and higher praise from critics and consumers alike.

    Washington winemakers draw inspiration mainly from Napa Valley, Bordeaux and the Rhône as well as increasingly from other regions like Spain and Italy. Most viticulture takes place on the eastern side of the state—an arid desert in the rain shadow of the Cascade mountains. Irrigation is made possible by the Columbia River. Temperatures are extreme, with hot and dry summers and cold winters, during which frost can be a risk.

    Washington’s wine industry was initially built on Merlot, which remains an important variety to this day, despite having been overtaken in acreage planted by Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Bordeaux blends and Rhône blends are common as well as single varietal bottlings. Washington reds tend to express a real purity of concentrated fruit. The best examples have a bold richness, seamless texture, plush or powdery tannins and flavors such as licorice, herb, forest floor, espresso and dark chocolate.

    In terms of white wine, Riesling is the state’s major success story, producing crisp, aromatic examples with plenty of stone fruit that range from bone dry to lusciously sweet. Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc perform nicely here as well, and Viognier is beginning to pick up steam.

    With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a soft and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is more fragrant and naturally high in acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
