    Kevin White lives in Seattle, Washington State and works for Microsoft.  So how come he produces such delicious Rhone-style red wines?  It all started in 2006, when Kevin became a lover of Washington’s finest red wines and began an unexpected journey to become a wine producer.  Over the course of the next four years, he traveled back and forth to Eastern Washington vineyards from Microsoft and worked under the tutelage of some of Washington’s leading winemakers.

    Established in 2010, the Kevin White Winery set out to produce hand-crafted wines that are complex, balanced, and pair well with food.  Kevin’s love for wines from the Rhone Valley in France has led him to focus primarily on Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedré from cooler climate vineyards in the Yakima Valley.  In 2012, Kevin released his first wine that promptly sold out within weeks and he has gone on to win multiple wine-making awards.

    The Kevin White Blue Label jumps out as a lively blend of cherry, plum, and blueberry aromas with floral and spice notes.  On the palate, these flavours are wrapped around a medium body with soft tannins leading toward a lovely finish.  This wine is a tribute to the Côtes-du-Rhône blends that are perfect to enjoy… well, anytime.

      This was my favourite wine from this month’s box as it really stood out with its uniqueness. Extremely silky mouth feel and intense cherry and sweet spices with some coffee and oak notes. Love it.

    Taste Profile of this Wine

    The Winecroft Wine Style Meter is a key tool to match you with the wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test.

    The needle shows the style of the wine:

    • Light: These are delicate wines which are easy to drink.  Whites will be dry, crisp and zesty.  Reds will be paler in colour with lighter tannins (tannins create a drying sensation in your mouth).
    • Medium-bodied: These wines offer up loads of fruit flavours with a balance of zesty acidity and tannins (in the reds).
    • Full-bodied: Red will be bigger, bolder and have higher levels of tannin. Whites will be rich and creamy,

    The Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine based on your personal wine profile.

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.

     

    Wines each month

    Each month we will recommend 4 superb new wines to try, individually matched to your latest taste profile. As a new Winecroft member, you will receive these 4 wines, delivered to your door.  In subsequent months, you will have full control over the wines you receive. You may find your wine preferences evolve over time, you would prefer more red than white, or you decide last month’s recommended wines weren’t quite right for you. In which case, you can update your taste profile and change or add to the recommended wines each month. And if you enjoyed one of the bottles so much, you can always order more.  You may, on the other hand, find you are just too busy to think about it, in which case you can opt to receive the wines hand-picked for your profile.

    The one thing that won’t change is that our members will always be drinking top-end wines that are on wine lists of the world’s best restaurants, for typically less than a third of the price.

    (Quick note – for new members who have just made your first order, when you look at your order details you will see next month’s recommendation.  Initially, this will contain the same wines as your first order but don’t worry, the Winecroft team will be working behind the scenes to quickly update this with 4 great new recommended wines based on your profile.)
