Wild Goose Vineyards Pinot Gris repeats as Cascadia best of show

By on April 16, 2018

RICHLAND, Wash. — Hagen Kruger and Wild Goose Vineyards in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley are doing their best to make sure Pinot Gris does not get overlooked in the Pacific Northwest or at the Cascadia Wine Competition.

Last week, the Wild Goose Vineyards 2017 Pinot Gris took top honors at the sixth annual Cascadia Wine Competition, an international judging in Washington’s Columbia Valley. In essence, Kruger, sons Nik and Alex and assistant winemaker Tanya Booth successfully defended their title because the Wild Goose 2016 Pinot Gris won best of show at the 2017 Cascadia.

“I keep saying to Nik and Tanya and Alex that if you want to create a brand, you have to be consistent,” Kruger said. “Sure, there are differences in the vintages which can lead to variations, but there has to be a level of consistency for the consumer year after year.

“Still, it’s amazing to hear that we won the Cascadia again,” he added. “Red wines get most of the spin these days, and quite often they come through as the top wines at competitions, so to come through as a white wine again? That blows me away.”

The Cascadia Wine Competition, operated by Great Northwest Wine, is the largest judging of Pacific Northwest wine staged in the U.S., and an international panel of 21 experts spent three days evaluating 1,012 wines using fruit from Washington, Oregon, Idaho or British Columbia.

This month’s judging along the banks of the Columbia River at the Courtyard Marriott Columbia Point reaffirmed the region’s magical work with Pinot Gris. Last fall, the 2017 Great Northwest Invitational Wine Competition was won by the Pike Road Wines 2016 Pinot Gris, produced in Oregon’s Willamette Valley under the direction of famed Elk Cove Vineyards producer Adam Campbell.

The best red wine of the 2018 Cascadia went to a 2015 Elephant Mountain Vineyard Carménère produced by Maryhill Winery in Goldendale, Wash., headlining the astonishing 14 gold medals earned by New Zealand winemaker Richard Batchelor on behalf of owners Craig and Vicki Leuthold.

Overall, it was a strong showing by British Columbia wineries, earning a total of 40 gold medals. Gehringer Brothers Estate Winery in Oliver won seven gold medals, while picturesque Lake Breeze Vineyards on the Naramata Bench near Penticton was awarded six golds. Township 7 Vineyards & Winery, another Naramata Bench producer, used its 2015 Seven Stars blanc de blanc to claim the title of best sparkling wine at the Cascadia.

Eleven Idaho producers combined for 19 gold medals and four best-of-class wines, led by Cinder Wines and its 2016 Dried on the Vine Viognier as best dessert wine. Coco Umiker in the Lewis-Clark Valley achieved four gold medals for her Clearwater Canyon Cellars brand, paced by her 2017 Umiker Vineyard Estate Lochsa Chardonnay as the judging’s top Chardonnay.

The winemaking by Columbia Gorge native Rich Cushman led to a whopping 10 gold medals, six for Mt. Hood Winery and four more for young Stave & Stone Wine Estates. His work on behalf of the two Hood River, Ore., companies included a pair of golds for Pinot Noir and two for rosé using Pinot Noir.

Last week’s international panel of judges, which included 11 winemakers and James Beard Award-winning wine writer Bill Ward, was enamored with Pinot Noir from Oregon, awarding 15 gold medals, including two each to McMinnville wineries Coeur de Terre Vineyard and Yamhill Valley Vineyards.

“It was a real treat to taste and assess wines from regions like Idaho, British Columbia and southern Oregon,” said Ward, columnist for the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. “These are world-class wines, every bit as good as those I have tasted at other competitions. This experience made me even more eager to explore the wines of these regions on my own.”

Stephen Reustle of Reustle-Prayer Rock Vineyards in Roseburg, Ore., won seven gold medals. This follows up on the six gold medals he received last month at the Savor NW Wine Awards competition on the Oregon Coast and matches his total from January at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition in Sonoma County — the largest judging in the nation.

Washington winemaker Victor Palencia was responsible for six gold medals via his work for Jones of Washington in Quincy, Palencia Winery in Walla Walla and Vino la Monarcha, now in Kennewick. He twice has won best of show at the Cascadia with his Vino la Monarcha brand.

Another Southern Oregon producer, Patrick Spangler, added validation to his recognition from Wine Press Northwest magazine as the 2018 Oregon Winery of the Year by winning five gold medals — each for a bold red wine.

Accolades in U.S. continue for Wild Goose wines

The Okanagan Falls winery operated by Hagen and his brother Roland was launched nearly 35 years ago by their late father, Adolf, as Wild Goose Vineyards. In 1990, Wild Goose became British Columbia’s 18th licensed winery and help found the BC Wine Institute. In 2009, Wine Press Northwest magazine named Wild Goose Vineyards as its Pacific Northwest Winery of the Year, and the Krugers have merited more Lt. Governor Awards for Excellence in Wine than any other producers in the province.

Wild Goose continues to grow at a remarkable clip, increasing production by more than 50 percent in the past three vintages to reach a production of 23,000 cases from the 2017 crush. And yet, the Kruger team has not lost its touch, evidenced by four gold medals at the Cascadia, a showing that included best of class in both Gewürztraminer and Pinot Noir. That superlative for the noble red grape of Burgundy particularly tickled Hagen Kruger.

“I have a hard time swallowing that,” he said. “(My wife) Kerry and I were down in Oregon last year, and the wines we tasted were just incredible. The Pinot Noir was outstanding.”

The Krugers produced 140 cases of their award-winning 2016 Pinot Noir, derived from clone 115 at Artemisia Vineyard on the Naramata Bench. That wine retails in British Columbia for $20.

“Our wines are so appreciated down across the line (in the U.S.),” said Roland Kruger, who serves as general manager. “We have a solid retail channel for our Pinot Gris and great distribution for our products, but when we do well in U.S. judgings, the media up here really pays attention and our wine club members love to hear about it.”

The 2017 Pinot Gris, at 6,000 cases, ranks second in the lineup in terms of production at Wild Goose, and what’s in the bottle represents a handful of vineyards from throughout the region.

“Each would probably be a gold-medal wine on its own, but I just blend them together to make something better,” Hagen Kruger said. “Our Pinot Gris comes from our long-term growers in Osoyoos to Kelowna and even to Keremeos in the Similkameen (Valley), and I only consider myself the manager of winemaking operations these days. Nick and Alexander are both the winemakers, and I merely direct them to put the Wild Goose stamp on things. It’s a team effort, and all the guys work hard. I just try to make everybody’s job as easy as possible, whether it be the guys in the cellar or the gals upstairs in the tasting room or in the office.”

Wild Goose wines recently became available in the U.S. via I.B. Imports, which is based in San Diego. The veteran boutique Southern California distributor can ship direct to Oregon, and it is looking to make in roads with the Kruger family wines in Washington state as well as on the East Coast. I.B. Imports can be reached via the email address on its website or by calling (858) 382-2294.

Public tasting of top wines set for The Lodge at Columbia Point

A public tasting featuring as many as 20 of the competition’s top wines is scheduled on Saturday, June 30, in Richland for The Lodge at Columbia Point, a new luxury hotel and spa near the Columbia River.

The Walla Walla Vintners 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon received the Tom Drumheller Memorial Award as the top wine produced by a Walla Walla, Wash., winery. Drumheller, a beloved leader in the Northwest hospitality industry and a Walla Walla native, died of cancer on Sept. 17, 2017 — just days after he opened The Lodge at Columbia Point.

Below are the complete results of the sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition. At no point during the competition did any winemaker on the judging panel determine an award for a wine belonging to one of their own brands.

  23. […] The aroma on this Merlot is in complete balance, upon first whiff you’re treated to equal parts of fruit, barrel influence and herbaceousness. The palate delivers yummy black cherry, with subtle oak influence, and a finish of tarragon and oregano. Absolutely perfect! This won a double gold medal at the  sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition. […]

  28. […] Pondera Winery, based in Woodinville, Wash., built this Merlot-based red blend with fruit from the Columbia Valley AVA for 2014. Spice, blackberries and blueberries lace it aromas, with mouth-filling flavors of blackberries and blueberries, a sheen of black cherries and an underlay of dark chocolate emerging on the palate. It finishes with big black tea-like tannins, betraying its Merlot backbone, plus engaging minerality. This won a gold medal and best of class at the 2018 Cascadia International Wine Competition. […]

  29. […] Aromas of white pepper and cranberry, combine with flavors of cherry and bright raspberry to deliver this acid-driven, lighty tannic and light bodied gem of a Sanviovese. This won a gold medal and best of class at the 2018 Cascadia International Wine Competition. […]

  30. […] Fans of the hit show Stranger Things are quick to pick a bottle of Eleven off the shelf, and rest assured if you’re buying this before you try it, you’re in for a treat. The aromas and flavors start off strong with zest of both lemon and lime, then develop into a sensation of a full mouth feel, showcasing nectarine, ripe peach, and apricot. There is a hint of spice working in the background to keep things mysterious…just like Stranger Things! This won a gold medal and best of class at the 2018 Cascadia International Wine Competition. […]

  31. […] Simon Fraser grad Andrea Lee went onto University of Adelaide for her master’s in enology on her way to becoming Chaberton’s winemaker in 2015. For her third vintage at the Lower Mainland winery, she used grapes from the Similkameen Valley to create a wine with aromas of candied ginger and lychee, then more ginger and lychee on the palate. It’s finished off-dry and would pair well with curry, Thai chicken and strong cheese. This won a gold medal and best of class at the 2018 Cascadia International Wine Competition. […]

  32. […] Cellardoor Winery labels this Petit Verdot “American,” an unusual step, but it’s a winery in Lincolnville, Maine, that used Washington-grown fruit and its winemaker, Aaron Peet, is a graduate of Walla Walla Community College’s wine program. The wine opens with aromas of mocha, herbs, blackeberries and blueberries, then replays them on its lush palate, adding a hint of chocolate and spice, then finishing with nice acidity and smooth tannins. This won a gold medal and best of class at the 2018 Cascadia International Wine Competition. […]

  33. […] Brian Carter appropriately names his Port-style blend Opulento. Drawing on Yakima Valley Touriga Nacional, Souzao, Tinta Cao and Tinta Roriz, he created a dessert wine that’s opulent indeed, with dark black and blue fruit aromas that become fulsome flavors of dried blueberries, blackberries and plums, a bit of chocolaty tannin at the end. This won a gold medal and best of class at the 2018 Cascadia International Wine Competition. […]

  34. […] This dry Riesling by Tightrope is a stellar example of all the goodness Riesling has to offer. It presents with equal aromas and flavors of lemon, lime, a touch of petrol, grapefruit zest, and evolves on the palate to show a touch of caramel and green apple. The racy acidity lingers for a long finish and prompts another amazing sip. This won a gold medal and best of class at the 2018 Cascadia International Wine Competition […]

  35. […] Telaya Wine Co. called in Yakima Valley fruit from Boushey Vineyards for its 2015 Sruth red blend, focusing on Cabernet Franc. Sruth, the Irish word for river, shows off its Cab Franc heritage with a bit of leaf and smoke in its dark cherry aromatics, then smooth dark cherries and elegant tannins in a long finish. This won a gold medal and best of class at the 2018 Cascadia International Wine Competition. […]

  36. […] The warm Wahluke is the source of these premium grapes, resulting in Best of Class Cascadia 2018. This Syrah shows off delectable blackberries, infused with peppery blueberries. The acid is spot-on and shares the background with the most delicate (but present!) oak influence. This won a gold medal and best of class at the 2018 Cascadia International Wine Competition. […]

  37. […] Hagen Kruger and his winemaking team sourced fruit from B.C.’s Naramata Bench for this Pinot Noir, producing a wine with cherry and vanilla oak aromas that lead into a fruit-forward wine with cherry, raspberry and plum flavors. Try it with rack of lamb. This won a gold medal and best of class at the sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition. […]

  38. […] Terry Brandborg and Brandborg Vineyard and Winery are among Oregon’s best-kept secrets, but this wine from the 2014 vintage may end that. Using grapes from the estate Ferris Wheel Vineyard near Elkton, he crafted an elegant wine with aromas of forest floor, cherries and a bare hint of spice, then flavors of red cherry and red currant, enchanting minerality and well-mannered tannins. This won a gold medal and best of class sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition. […]

  39. […] Best Buy! Walter and Gordon Gehringer’s latest Classic Riesling lives up to its billing, with brilliant varietal aromas of grapefruit, lime, honey and peach from its Okanagan Valley fruit. In the mouth, it adds apple and kiwi, plus refreshing acidity and a trace of sweetness. It’s officially off-dry, but the acidity makes it an excellent food wine Asian fare, especially if it contains lemongrass, lime and yellow or green curry. This won a gold medal and best of class at the sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition. […]

  40. […] Tim and Kelly Hightower blended 80% Cabernet Sauvignon with 10% Merlot and 10% Malbec for their 2014 Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. The result is aromas of mint, spice, earth and black and blue fruit. On the palate, blackberry, blueberry and black currant lead to a juicy finish of sophisticated tannins. This won a gold medal and best of class at the sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition. […]

  41. […] The Gamache family and winemaking talent Charlie Hoppes combine to create a classic Malbec nose, showing off a range of earthiness that spans blackberry tea, raspberry bramble, fresh-turned garden, dried leaves and spicy plum. The palate is lush and earthy, boasting bold flavors of boysenberry, blueberry and blackberry tea. The acid is zippy and bright, keeping every sip bright and bold. This won a gold medal and best of class sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition. […]

  42. […] Best Buy! Topped with a screwcap, labeled Columbia Valley and bargain priced, this wine labeled “Traditions” by Milbrandt Vineyards carries on a tradition of Washington Chardonnay for the past 40 years. Lime and Granny Smith apple notes lead to a refreshing palate of citrus, tart apple and a dab of pineapple that’s finished off with a lingering, juicy minerality. This earned a gold medal sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition. […]

  44. […] Burnt Bridge Cellars in downtown Vancouver, Wash., sourced fruit from the Walla Walla Valley for its 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, blending in some Merlot (17%) for backbone. Nice oak handling by winemaker Ben Stuart, a graduate of Walla Walla Community College’s vaunted winemaking program, shows in its aromas, with a touch of mint and black cherry. On the palate, blackberry and blueberry reinforce the black cherry, with firm tannins in its finish. This product of McKibben-farmed Les Collines Vineyard earned a gold medal and best of class sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition. […]
