Orchid Hill Winery
Paso Robles, California

About the Winery | Viognier | Pinot Noir | Zinfandel Primi | Syrah | Muscat Canelli | Private Reserve Viognier

Orchid Hill is a 51 acre vineyard located on sloping limestone hills in the Templeton Gap area of the west side of Paso Robles Wine Country.

Our low-vigor vineyards enjoy ideal southeast facing sun exposure and cooling afternoon breezes.

The vines are meticulously hand tended and harvested. This environment provides wines with exceptional bouquet, depth of color, and impressive ripeness of flavors.

Northeast Wine Brokers is proud to offer the following Orchid Hill wines in Connecticut:

 

2007 Orchid Hill Viognier
Vibrantly perfumed and aromatic, Orchid Hill Viognier is rich and supple textured, and offers up fresh flavors of peach, mango and fruit cocktail.

     
 

2006 Orchid Hill Pinot Noir
This fine Burgundian varietal thrives on the calcareous-shale soil and cool breezes of the Templeton Gap. Long hang-time to ripeness produces vibrant cherry flavors, fresh and bright depth and complexity to the mid-palate.

     
 

2005 Orchid Hill Zinfandel Primi
On this austere site, planted with much-sought-after Primitivo clone of Zinfandel, vines struggle but manage to maintain a naturally perfect balance between foliage and clusters. The resulting wine displays a marked sophistication often lacking in Zinfandel. Rich, spicy flavors and deep intense pigmentation are a sure sign of fully ripened fruit. Classically structured, the 2003 drinks well now, but will age gracefully for several years.

     
 

2003 Orchid Hill Syrah
Syrah is perfectly suited to the sunny warm days and cool nights of the West side of Paso Robles. Our Syrah is big wine, exceptionally dark with deep rich tannins and flavors of dark cherry and blueberry. Bold and intense, it will age gracefully in the bottle for several years to come and will turn heads with its exceptional balance of complexity and finesse.

     
 

Muscat Canelli (Not a dessert wine)
Orchid Hill Muscat Canelli offers up an exotic flavor and aroma profile, balanced by crisp acidity and supple fruit character. One of the largest families of grapes, Muscat is heralded for its distinctive perfume and robust flavor intensity. A perfect companion with Asian cuisine, this lovely wine is sure to please every palate with its definitive, spicy aromatics, silky texture and exquisite balance.

     

2006 Viognier Private Reserve
Lush-textured and richly aromatic, Orchid Hill Reserve Viognier is sourced from estate-grown vines, firmly rooted in limestone/shale soil on Paso Robles' hilly westside. Serve this dynamic wine with fresh sushi, with spicy grilled shrimp, or with nearly any Asian cuisine.
