Helix 2015 Sangiovese

"2015 gifted one of the warmest Washington vintages on record and delivered with it unexpected, amazingly high acidity enabling us to jump at the opportunity to produce a traditional, rustic Sangiovese.  It was cellared in neutral French oak, much of it in large barrels, for an extended period allowing for traditional character development. Scents of raspberry jam, red currant and sundried tomato circulate with hints of pepper, sandalwood and savory herb. Additional time reveals distinguished cherry with subtle leather notes. A wonderful soft palate of very fine tannins is accompanied by perfect acidity and flavors that mirror the nose. The pinch of pepper, loamy earth, leather, Italian dark roast espresso drops and soft-grippy tannins give the wine rustic nuances." - Chuck Reininger, Winemaker

Helix 2015 Viognier

"Produced to accentuate the relationship between fruit and soil, our 2015 Helix Viognier uncloaks the best of this varietal while sharing the fractured basalt and loamy minerality of the of the upper Royal slope. Stillwater Creek’s location allows for a protracted ripening period developing more intense Viognier aromatics reminiscent of orange blossom, stone fruit, pear, guava and, given a little time, even a touch of caramelized sugar. The mouth weight and medium acidity are pleasantly relaxing." - Chuck Reininger, Winemaker

Helix 2017 Chardonnay

"Stainless steel has brought to prominence a dramatic balance of mineral and fruit gifted by Stillwater Creek’s fractured basalt soils, high on the Royal Slope near the top of the Frenchman Hills. Wonderful aromas of ripe white pears and apple blossoms emerge from the glass with notes of citrus and a touch of beeswax. Its perfect medium-plus body and acidity deliver clean flavors of pear with a slice of golden delicious apple, and a blade of lemongrass supported by a flinty/basalt minerality. This is best served a touch on the cooler side." - Chuck Reininger, Winemaker

Helix 2014 SoRho

SoRhô is one of the most fun wines to make and is a customer perennial favorite. Mourvedre, Cinsault and Grenache grapes, that comprise this intriguing, food friendly wine, were harvested on the same day and  co-fermented on stems in small open top fermenters. Our goal was to capture the southern Rhône flavors from where these grapes are characteristically found. The wine has a ruby/magenta color with scents of violets and lavender, slightly baked blueberries, raspberries, pomegranate, beef carpaccio and hints of mushrooms. On the palate, soft tannins and a vibrant acidity usher in the flavors while introducing crushed mulberries, strawberry fruit leather and minerals. Enjoy the exploration! - Chuck Reininger, Winemaker

Helix 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon

There is no doubt this is the most relaxed Cabernet Sauvignon that we have ever produced. Fruit forward with well-worn khakis. Lofty aromatics are full of cherry and red plum, swirling with whiffs of sweet oak spice followed by a paper-thin slice of steak tartar. With its very soft tannins, the wine enters the mouth ever so gently yet with lively acidity that elevates a delightful blend of Chelan cherry, plum, currant and a hint of marionberry tagged with a beautiful lingering finish of bright cherry accompanied by brown baking spices and light oak. ~ Chuck Reininger, Winemaker

Helix 2012 Merlot

This is a sturdy Merlot, possessing a deep ruby color with a complex aromatic mix of dark fruit, incense, garden soil, bay leaf, chocolate and a breath of vanilla. Black currant and cherry charge the palate, riding over a texture of medium-round/slightly chewy tannins while chasing dried plums dipped in dark chocolate with drops of toffee and sprinkled with savory spice. You might think twice about marinara and go for the beef. ~Chuck Reininger, Winemaker

Helix 2012 Syrah

Cellaring in 100% neutral oak permits the syrah to speak to its true character. Allowing for some breathing time, our 2012 Helix Syrah, with its rich garnet color, brings forth its Northern Rhone character, displaying aromas of light smoky gaminess, violets, attar, and a trace of lavender, baked blueberries and white pepper. The syrah rushes the entrance with black olive, blueberry, baked fig and plum, and mildly scours the palate with fine grain tannins, a scratch of pepper with smear of boysenberry. ~Chuck Reininger, Winemaker
