Tour Bridlewood Estate Winery with Judit & Corina from http://www.winedinetv.com
A beautiful video tour of the winery & vineyards and a quick review of English Pleasure Syrah.
Bridlewood Winery was designed for high-quality, artisan winemaking. Just inside the adobe façade of this Spanish-style winery, state-of-the-art equipment is the order of the day: pneumatic bladder presses, temperature controlled fermenters, gentle grape and wine handling systems, and the finest European and American oak barrels.
Winemaker David Hopkins selects grapes from dozens of Central Coast vineyards to create his intense , lush Pinot Noir, aromatic Viognier and elegant Chardonnay. Each wine is as unique as the Bridlewood property itself. Nestled on the eastern edge of the Santa Ynez Valley, 30 miles north of Santa Barbara, our 105-acre estate is set on a high bench of ancient seabed. The picturesque landscape features a Mission-style winery, hillside vineyards and breathtaking views of the surrounding region.
~Bridlewood Estate Winery Winner Circle "English Pleasure" Syrah opens with floral notes of dark cherries, rose petals and violets. This is soon followed by the scents of cedar, sandalwood, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. This is an elegant wine that is full of silky tannins with a velvety finish.
