Just in time for the warm summer weather, we are excited to release the new vintages of our Three Muses wines:
- 2021 Cymbal Sauvignon Blanc
- 2020 Dance Chardonnay
- 2020 Poet's Leap Riesling - 93 points, Editors' Choice
These wines are crafted to inspire our higher essence and elicit the joy that comes from following our passions in literature, music, and the arts.
But why the name, Three Muses?
Our founder, Allen Shoup, is an energetic and generous supporter of the arts. You can probably guess that due to the large collection of Chihuly glass in our Walla Walla tasting room. When it came time to name the three white wines that we love to make, it seemed fitting to honor the Muses of Greek Mythology, and hope that our ambrosia could bring inspiration to your pursuits, be it a quiet night on the patio or a lively gathering with friends and family.
2021 Cymbal Sauvignon Blanc
Wonderfully vibrant and aromatic, with notes of lemongrass, passion fruit and a hint of honeysuckle. Flavors of mango, fresh herbs and white peach, come together seamlessly across a textured palate and lengthy finish.
2020 Dance Chardonnay
A layered, aromatic wine that displays minerality and white blossom fragrances with flavors of white peach, apple and a hint of baking spice woven throughout a subtle, creamy texture.
2020 Poet's Leap Riesling
93 points, Editors' Choice - Wine Enthusiast
A racy wine with fragrant white flower blossoms, kumquat and citrus rind aromas and flavors wrapped around a core of delicious minerality. Lively and pure, with balanced acidity and just a trace of residual sugar to give the wine a vibrant mouthfeel and long, satisfying finish.
