Wine Cellar of Yelm

Red Wine

If you like that heavier body and a wide variety of flavor with increased complexity Reds are a great choice. Reds usually contain a higher level of tannins and alcohol.

These qualities come from the fermentation process, during which the skins are left in the tank along with the juice.  Bottle and Barrel aging also comes into the mix with air being exposed as the wine matures.  This process has a lot to do with the character of the wine.

White Wines

The best tasting white wines tend to be more acidic than reds, although this can be overlooked based on the sweetness or the tannins present.  These wines are fermented without the skins giving them a golden clear appearance.  The alcohol content of the wine will closely affect the body giving you that warm feeling a the back of your throat.  

You can find a wide range of sweetness in whites, from very sweet to dry.  This comes from a variety of factors such has harvest time and fermentation.

Champagne

Never a bad time to celebrate!  Champagne has become the celebratory drink of the world.  This accidental invention has made it’s way into our lives in a great way.  We offer many varieties of sparkling wines as well as true blue orthodox Champagne.  We’ve even been known to carry sparkling reds and rose on occasion.

As most champagnes are blended sweetness comes into the flavor based on the sugar dosage with the least being “Extra Brut” to the most being “Doux”.  The most common being the “Brut” style.
