“from the Colorado land”FOR IMMEDIATE LEASE
FIRST WINE RELEASE BEING INTRODUCED AT WINEFEST: ALREADY TWO-TIME MEDAL WINNER FOR COLTERRIS WINES
Colterris Wines announces the introduction of 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon from Theresa’s Vineyard in Palisade. Wine lovers will get to taste it for the first time at Colorado Mountain Winefest.
Colterris Wines began operations in January 2010 and is introducing their first wine release, the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon from Theresa’s Vineyard. Colorado Mountain Winefest attendees will have the opportunity to taste the bold new Cabernet Sauvignon for the first time at the festival in Riverbend Park on September 18, 2010 at the Colterris Booth (#41) and in the VIP tent!
The name Colterris was derived by combining a three letter abbreviation of Colorado “Col” with the Latin word “terris” meaning from the land.
Colterris Cabernet Sauvignon originates primarily from grapes grown in the sun and soil of Theresa’s Vineyard on East Orchard Mesa south of Palisade located in Colorado's beautiful and picturesque Western Slope. Situated in the heart of the Grand Valley AVA, this 19 acre unique vineyard site at 4,600 feet in elevation is protected by the foothills of the Grand Mesa immediately to the south and east and by close proximity to the Colorado River directly to the north and west. This combination of high altitude sunlight and cool river nights produce a distinctively bold red wine, rich in color, flavor and smooth tannins.
The 2008 Colterris is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from Theresa’s Vineyard and Malbec and Merlot grapes grown in the Grand Valley AVA. The wine was aged in French and American oak barrels for 18 months and 1,084 cases of this premier release were bottled in July 2010.
“I am very excited about the world class quality of the grapes being harvested from East Orchard Mesa south of Palisade and extremely encouraged about the future potential of wines being produced from the Grand Valley AVA”, said Theresa High, owner and manager of High Country Orchards & Vineyards and Colterris Wines.
