Episode 14: McRitchie Winery 2008 Fallingwater White

North Carolina Wine TV Review:
At first glance this summer white wine is more clear than golden in color. Melons and honey dance on the nose as the wine is swirled in the glass. The McRitchie 2008 Fallingwater White is a great example of what a good North Carolina white wine can be. It is perfectly balanced with a crystal clear finish. This is an ideal summer white wine with the distinct flavor of green apple peel. Not very complex, but a wine that most everyone will enjoy and a welcome change from traditional white grapes like chardonnay.

Price: $16

Availability: Directly from the winery

Rating: ★★★★☆

About McRitchie Winery and Ciderworks (from the winery):
It’s all about the wine. From the moment the ground was prepared and planted through each growing season it always comes down to alchemy — with a little human assistance — that causes sun-ripened grapes to convert their sugars into alcohol and become wines worth drinking. We grew up in the wine country of Oregon and Washington and this has been our life together. Now, with our children, we hope to produce wines that are memorable, true to place, and most of all, enjoyable.

Sean’s father was a winemaker in California and Oregon and the winemaking bug hit Sean early. In addition to working in wineries and vineyards in the Willamette Valley of Oregon, he has worked at renowned wineries in many of the world’s premier wine regions including Alsace Lorraine, Napa Valley, and Australia. In 1998 his adventurer’s heart led him to North Carolina where he was involved in the establishment of a large vineyard and winery in the Yadkin Valley and later founded a winery and vineyard consulting business.

    LOVE McRitchie and Round Peak…. haven’t tried the Fallingwater White but I am a big fan of the Ring of Fire red, which is available at Foundation bar in Raleigh by the glass (Foundation is located downtown on Fayetteville Street immediately next to The Mint for those who may not know). I did a write up of Foundation bar over on highlighting their commitment to North Carolina spirits, beers, and wine. Check it out:
