Biltmore Estates Century Collection

Are you familiar with the Biltmore Estates?  architecturally stunning, the estate was completed in 1895.  Built for George Vanderbilt, it is nestled into the mountains of Ashville, North Carolina.

Today, they are producing extraordinary wine at Antler Hill Village and Winery.

To celebrate Biltmore Estates 100 Year Anniversary, they produced the “Century Collection”

I had the pleasure recently to try both the Century Red and Century White.

 

The red is a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Zinfandel from the Cienega Valley, Sonoma, and Lake County AVA’s of California.

Rich flavors of blackberry and raspberries come forward along with the aromas of warm vanilla oak, herbs and plum to create a smooth drink with a lingering tannin finish.

 

The Century White is a surprising blend of Muscat Canelli, Riesling, Gew├╝rztraminer and Malvasia, originating 99% from Mendocino and Monterey California, and 1% from North Carolina.

It is fermented in stainless steel so the result is a crisp lightly sweet wine, boasting flavors of tropical fruit, lime, lemon and honey.

I really enjoyed the flavors of both of these wines.  Together, I could host the perfect dinner party!

 

What would I serve?  

I’d start with Century White and a Spinach Salad with Pear & Walnuts

Followed by Century Red with Prime Rib and Rosemary Sweet Potatoes

Then end again with Century White, paired with a Pina Colada Dragon Fruit Salad for dessert!
