From planting their first vines along Ash Creek in the Chiricahua Mountain foothills in 2008 to putting the finishing touches on their Scottsdale-based wine gallery and tasting room in the fall of 2014, Co-Owners Curt Dunham and Peggy Fiandaca of Lawrence Dunham Vineyards have been busy building a highly successful collection of wines to please the palettes of even the most sophisticated wine aficionados.

On March 29, 2015, LDV added three new releases to its collection — the 2013 Sky Island Viognier, 2012 Grenache and 2012 Syrah. Each of these new wines has its own unique notes.

• The 2013 Sky Island Viognier — This crisp white wine envelops the purity of the Sky Island region’s mountain fruit with hints of apricot and a clean finish of flint and minerals. This dry, light wine is perfect for enjoying with shellfish, lemon chicken and spicy foods while dining al fresco. $18, bottle; $6 by the glass

• The 2012 Grenache — As a follow-up to the popular 2010 Grenache, which quickly sold out, the 2012 Grenache displays a more full-bodied, intense fruit flavor as the vines have matured along with hints of licorice and toast. A perfect pairing for anything hot off the grill from chicken kabobs to seared Ahi tuna. $25, bottle; $8 by the glass

• The 2012 Syrah — After three long years, LDV is finally ready for its first estate Syrah release. With 100 % Syrah grapes aged in one-year-old American oak barrels for 30 months, this full-bodied wine encompasses all the classic characteristics of a fine Syrah — dark berries, leather and a touch of mocha. It pairs well with blue-veined and parmesan cheeses, grilled meats and wood-fired pizza. $32 bottle; $10 by the glass

“We’re thrilled to be introducing these three wines this spring and hope that wine drinkers will continue to enjoy the varieties we produce,” said Dunham, who is the Winemaker at LDV.

Along with the debut of these three new wines and more releases to come in the near future, the winery is introducing new wine flights — All White for Summer, All Red Flight or a Mixed Flight — with varying prices.
