MHW WINS AT WinePress Northwest’s “Best of the Best”

Jan 14, 2014

DOUBLE PLATINUM
Maryhill Winery 2010 Sugarloaf Vineyard Mourvedre, Rattlesnake Hills:
  • It’s been some kind of year for Maryhill and winemaker Richard Batchelor, winner of approximately 70 gold medals this year throughout the United States. This wine, part of a new tier called The Vineyards, is the best of the bunch. Mourvèdre is a Rhône red that is coming on strong in Washington, and this is a classic with aromas of vanilla, plum and gaminess, followed by flavors of dark fruit compote, blackberry pie and spice. (360 cases, 13.8% alc.) Awards: Indy International Wine Competition (double gold), Seattle Wine Awards (double gold).
Maryhill Winery 2010 Proprietor's Reserve Syrah, Columbia Valley: 
  • Richard Batchelor hasn’t taken long to dial in on some favorite vineyards since arriving from California in 2009. Most of the grapes for this gorgeous Syrah came from Northridge Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope. The nose carries alluring aromas of baked brownie and blueberry, followed by textured flavors of black currant, smoke, spice, plum and orange zest. (401 cases, 14.5% alc.) Awards: Great Northwest Wine Competition (gold), Dallas Morning News Wine Competition (gold).
PLATINUM
Maryhill Winery 2010 Elephant Mountain Vineyards Indira, Rattlesnake Hills: 
  • Southern Rhône red blends are all the rage in the Pacific Northwest, and this example from Maryhill Winery in Goldendale, Wash., takes a different twist, as it uses the some what rare Cinsault and Counoise grapes. It’s a gorgeous wine with exotic spice and sweet cherry aromas, followed by smooth flavors of plum, cherry and leather, making for a beautifully balanced wine. (94 cases, 13.2% alc.) Awards: San Francisco International Wine Competition (double gold/best Rhône blend), Finger Lakes International Wine Competition (double gold), Seattle Wine Awards (gold).
Maryhill Winery 2010 Les Collines Cabernet Sauvignon, Walla Walla Valley: 
  • One of the best Cabs of the year comes from winemaker Richard Batchelor, who brought in on these grapes from a top vineyard in the foothill of the Blue Mountains. This presents aromas and flavors of cherry, black olive and dark chocolate with plummy notes in the finish. It is all backed with impressive acidity and moderate tannins. (376 cases, 14.8% alc.) Award: Northwest Wine Summit (gold).
Maryhill Winery 2010 Sangiovese, Columbia Valley: 
  • Winemaker Richard Batchelor’s value-minded Sangiovese is a true-to-type red wine with bright aromas and flavors of cherry, heirloom tomato and cranberry, backed with bright acidity and mellow tannins.
