Embark on an extraordinary wine adventure as you journey thousands of miles with The Americas curated collection. Explore the diverse and vibrant winemaking scene across the continents of North and South America, and uncover the true essence of American wines. This collection showcases hidden gems and lesser-known grape varieties, inviting you to go beyond the familiar and discover something extraordinary.
One captivating example is our Norton wine from Augusta Winery. For those unfamiliar, Augusta was the first American Viticultural Area (AVA) in the United States, even predating Napa Valley. Shifting our focus northwards, Canadian vineyards have quietly been producing exceptional Cabernet Franc and Riesling for years, two varietals that thrive in the cool climate conditions of the region. And finally, we journey to Chile, a country often mistaken for mass-production wines due to its warm climate and fertile valleys. However, several wine regions in Chile are crafting remarkable wines like País and Carignan, both of which are included in this collection.
The Americas collection demonstrates that by venturing beyond marquee grape varieties and regions, there is extraordinary quality and value to be found in the lesser-known.
The wine illicits all the classic earthy and floral Cabernet Franc notes—crushed violets, cracked pepper, tobacco leaf—punctuated by generous raspberry and black plum flavors. Framed by suave, velvety tannins and elongated with a bright, dark-fruited acidity, the wine demonstrates length and ageworthiness.
With laser-like precision and luminous, beaming acidity, this Riesling from Cave Spring is the quintessential expression of Canada’s Niagara Peninsula. Notes of citrus oil, frozen pear, and rounded river rocks encapsulate the wine’s crystalline purity. At once light and refreshing, while also concentrated and complex, the wine’s brightness and great length make this a Riesling for all seasons.
Richly succulent, this Norton exudes all the satisfying spice and fruit tones that make this grape such a beloved American standard. Black cherry compote, raspberry coulis, briar patch, and wilted herbs—the wine is both youthful and complexly layered. A joy to drink today, this Norton can also age several years.
Exuberant and expressive, this Moscatel displays the grape variety’s signature flamboyance, paired with a purity of fruit that is so quintessentially Chilean. The wine opens with an intoxicating boisterous amalgam of floral aromas—white rose, orange blossom, jasmine. It’s equally bold on the palate, with fleshy flavors of grapefruit oil, starfruit, and kiwi, coupled with muskier spice market notes.
With a concentration that can be attributed to the gnarly vines, averaging over 70 years in age, from which this Carignan is harvested, the wine exemplifies the majesty of Chile’s old vineyards. Spicy and crunchy in its woodsy, autumnal flavors and its rustic tannins, the Carignan shows a second side in its youthful and pure berry notes—cranberry, raspberry, and red currant. That surprising juxtaposition evokes the wine’s complexity and mouthwatering appeal.
A País of complexity and exuberant character, the wine demonstrates the unparalleled rewards yielded from old vines—with those contributing to this País often exceeding 100 years in age. Boisterous, crunchy flavors of cranberry, passionfruit, hibiscus, and black tea give way to a more savory, herbaceous finish. This light-bodied red carries the ability to refresh, the punchiness to excite, and the nuance to drive contemplation.
