2018 Sauvignon Blanc
2018 Sauvignon BlancWhite Wine
Crisp and flinty, this wine is an homage to Sancerre, the home of Sauvignon Blanc in France. A hint of lime integrates with savory grass notes on the nose while the palate offers firm acidity and streak of minerality.
100% Sauvignon Blanc
2017 Antietam Reserve (wine club only)
2017 Antietam Reserve (wine club only)Red Wine Blend
A very ripe vintage, showing with a pop of cassis, bing cherry, and cocoa on the nose. The palate is medium bodied, bright, with a strong backbone of oak spice and tannin. Enjoy decanted, with plenty of aeration.
The vintage blessed us with an abundant crop that allowed us to make enough wine for our first varietal bottling. Vibrant aromas of red fruit supported by slight floral characters. The palate reveals a light and lively body with gentle tannins. The fruit is sourced from our estate vineyard planted on clay and limestone, just like in Pinot's native Burgundy. Not fined or filtered. 100% Pinot Noir.
2019 MalbecRed Wine
A bright and fruity medium body wine. This variety is normally blended into Antietam Reserve, but we kept it separate for the first time this vintage. Aromas of bramble fruit and especially blueberries dominate the palate. The wine is dark and purple in color, characteristic for the variety. 75% Malbec and 25% Merlot.
2019 Sauvignon Blanc
2019 Sauvignon BlancWhite Wine
A uniquely Maryland style of Sauvignon Blanc. Bright lime-citrus on the nose with a firm structure of acid, mineral, and slight chalk character on the palate. Stainless steel fermented with no oak contact.
2018 ChardonnayWhite Wine
Soft, rich, and ripe, this wine shows what Maryland can do. Delicately perfumed with oak spice, this was made with traditional Burgundian winemaking -- partial malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels, and periodic bâtonnage (stirring of the lees).
2017 Petit Verdot
2017 Petit VerdotRed Wine
Ideal weather produced a near-perfect growing season with very ripe fruit. This wine exhibits classic varietal characters of cassis, bramble fruit, and graphite on the nose. Robust palate with refined tannins and is remarkably soft owing to its 22 months of barrel age in French oak barrels (29% new). Approachable now, but will continue to age well for years to come.
100% Petit Verdot.
Peach (sold out, returning soon!)
Peach (sold out, returning soon!)
Made entirely with peaches (no grapes!), with a technique we crafted on site. Tree-ripened fruit is pitted by hand to ensure quality. Sweet, rich, and very aromatic. 4% residual sugar.
While supplies last.
2017 Cabernet Franc
2017 Cabernet FrancRed Wine
This first varietally labelled Cabernet Franc wine from Antietam Creek Vineyards is a true representation of Maryland terroir and winemaking. It shows the restraint and refinement of the French style but with the ripe and rich character of California. 16 months in French oak barrels have given this wine structure that will hold up to years of bottle aging while also a sweet richness that only extended barrel aging can give. Made with traditional production techniques such as pump-overs in tank during fermentation, complete malolactic fermentation in barrel, and extended barrel aging on light lees. 88% Cabernet Franc, 12% Merlot.
2016 Antietam Reserve
2016 Antietam ReserveRed Wine Blend
For 2016, Antietam Creek Vineyards made one red wine that expresses the essence of the Bordeaux blend: red berry character from Merlot, spice and pepper from Cabernet Franc, color and structure from Petit Verdot, with a hint of bramble berry and graphite from Cabernet Sauvignon. Complete malolactic fermentation and 14 months aging in French oak barrels provide softness and structure. 36% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Franc, 23% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Malbec.
2017 ChardonnayWhite Wine
Old World in character with aromas of almond, honey, brioche, and citrus. The palate reveals a pleasant mild acidity that frames the aromas and carries it to a long finish. Traditionally made with French oak barrel fermentation and partial malolactic fermentation. Aged seven months in barrel. 88% Chardonnay, 12% Pinot Noir.
