Our winemakers have been hard at work creating some exciting launches that we’ve been DYING to share with you! Now that they’ve officially launched, we can tell you all about the top secret developments they’ve been working on, and the amazing flavor profiles and nuances of each. We’re thrilled to welcome THREE new delicious varietals to the ONEHOPE Wine family! Meet the Monterey Reserve Gewürztraminer, North Coast Reserve Muscat, and Monterey Reserve Riesling! Below we’ve outlined the tasting notes, history, and winemaking process for each wine that we can’t wait for you to try.
Monterey Reserve Gewürztraminer
We’re loving our new Monterey Reserve Gewürztraminer, the somewhat rare and always sought-after white varietal that’s as sweet as it is complex. In fact, it’s been compared to the grown-up version of Moscato. Produced by Rob Mondavi Jr. in California’s Monterey American Viticultural Area (AVA), this soft, medium-bodied, perfectly balanced 2017 vintage gives you a mouthful of exotic fruit flavor, spicy aromas, and a honey-like finish.
Our Reserve Gewürztraminer expresses the notes from its Monterey growing region, including fascinating lychee and passion fruit aromas, with hints of honey and spice. An ice-cold bottle of our Monterey Reserve Gewürztraminer is the perfect wine to cut through rich foods at any meal, pairing great with creamy blue cheeses, prosciutto and melon appetizers, coconut curries, and cardamom polenta cake. And want to try an easy, Gewürztraminer-inspired cocktail that will liven up any get-together? Look no further than Lychee Sangria—a crowd-pleasing concoction that combines our Monterey Reserve Gewürztraminer with St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur, whole lychee berries, and lychee syrup for a deliciously aromatic, refreshing mixture that enhances the wine’s inherent exotic flavor.
Plus, you can feel good knowing that every bottle of our Monterey Reserve Gewürztraminer helps fund resources to eliminate the challenges of rare disease through one of the world’s leading rare disease patient advocacy nonprofit organizations, Global Genes. By working with Global Genes, one of our new cause partners, a portion of the profits from our Monterey Reserve Gewürztraminer will contribute to building awareness, educating the global community, and providing connections and resources that equip advocates to become activists for their disease. ONEHOPE is proud to be partnering with Global Genes to donate a portion of our Monterey Reserve Gewürztraminer profits to help eliminate challenges associated with rare and genetic diseases across the world.
North Coast Reserve Muscat
Now on to our North Coast Reserve Muscat—the second California Muscat varietal to join our ONEHOPE family. Produced by Rob Mondavi Jr. in California’s North Coast American Viticultural Area (AVA), this off-dry, light-medium bodied 2017 vintage is a lively, fresh Muscat with balanced acidity and a touch of sweetness. Indulge in an ice cold glass of our North Coast Reserve Muscat that’s bursting with pungent floral notes, like aromatic lily, combined with juicy ripe peaches and flavorful Meyer lemon. The ultimate spring or summer wine, an ice-cold bottle of our delightful North Coast Reserve Muscat also makes an amazing happy hour or dinnertime selection, pairing beautifully with rich goat cheeses, cold Thai noodle salad, flavorful Hawaiian pizza, and cardamom-peach galette.
Try blending our Muscat with frozen peaches and powdered sugar for a sweet, wine slushy that will have everyone asking for more. Plus, you can feel good knowing that every bottle of our North Coast Reserve Muscat helps find better treatment and cures for all pediatric cancers through the inspiring national childhood cancer foundation, Alex’s Lemonade Stand. By working with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, another new cause partner of ours, a portion of the profits from our North Coast Reserve Muscat will help raise funds for research into new treatments and cures for all children battling cancer. With a mission to change the lives of children with cancer through funding research, raising awareness, supporting families, and empowering everyone to help find a cure, Alex’s Lemonade Stand has raised more than $150 million, funding over 800 pediatric cancer research projects in 135 institutions across the United States and Canada. ONEHOPE is proud to be partnering with Alex’s Lemonade Stand to donate a portion of our North Coast Reserve Muscat profits to such an amazing cause—and just like their slogan, we are happy to be “fighting childhood cancer, one cup at a time.”
Monterey Reserve Reisling
We at ONEHOPE are pleased to introduce our newest California Riesling—the second of this particular white varietal to join the ONEHOPE family—Monterey Reserve Riesling. This off-dry, light-medium bodied 2017 vintage has a touch of minerality and reflects distinct tasting notes from its cooler north-central California coast wine-growing climate. As you sip on our new Monterey Reserve Riesling, inhale the scent of fresh kiwi flowers and expressive stone fruit aromas, while you savor the taste of fresh apricot and citrus zest in the finish—the perfect spring wine for enjoying on your patio with a few close friends.
A bottle of our refreshing Monterey Reserve Riesling also makes the ideal brunch or lunch companion, pairing beautifully with a creamy pasta primavera, a fresh Chinese chicken salad, a decadent Gouda cheese, and even light sugar cookies. Want to really impress your guests with a Riesling-inspired dessert or palate cleanser? Try our Monterey Reserve in Cucumber-and-Riesling Granita form—the simple, fresh Italian delicacy that’s mixed with superfine sugar, cucumber puree, and, of course, wine, that’s frozen until flaky and crystallized.
Every bottle of ONEHOPE’s Monterey Reserve Riesling helps fund children’s literary education across the globe through the dynamic nonprofit, Room to Read—just remember “Riesling for Reading!” By working with Room to Read, a portion of all profits from our Monterey Reserve Riesling will help transform children’s lives in low-income countries by focusing on literacy and gender equality in education. Working with local communities, partner organizations, and governments, Room to Read helps develop literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children. ONEHOPE is proud to be partnering with Room to Read to donate a portion of Monterey Reserve Riesling profits to help children all over the world.
