From the pioneers of the industry to the ground-breakers who extend the reach of the state’s winemaking reputation, the special relationship between the growers and winemakers of Washington state is one to be celebrated.
To celebrate this bond, The Auction of Washington Wines is delighted to announce the inaugural offering of the Private Barrel Auction Barrel Series.
As we celebrate the fifth year of the Private Barrel Auction and how far we have come, we think back to the beginnings of winemaking in our state, and the incredible importance of the collaborative relationships between growers and winemakers. Thanks to their pioneering efforts, wine grown and made in Washington state continues to challenge and elevate the industry standards. The result is 25 cases of a unique wine not available anywhere else. Growers Dick and Luanne Boushey and winemaker Jeff Lindsay-Thorsen of W.T. Vintners have collaborated in the vineyard and the cellar to create a wine of nuance and balance in an effort to bring to the essence of the famed Boushey vineyards.
Each case will be sold separately.
• 40% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 25% Mourvedre
• In keeping with the traditions of Those winemaking the wine is aged in a 500L large format barrel called a puncheon. This method helps preserve both he vibrancy and the decadence of the wine.
• A project between the iconic Washington State winery Chateau Ste. Michelle and the acclaimed Rhône winemaker Michel Gassier, with the assistance of Southern Rhône’s famous enology consultant, Philippe Cambie
