2017 Insider - Summer Harvest
A sparkling apple wine made with fruit sourced from Mercier Orchard in Blue Ridge, Georgia. This is a light crisp wine with a clean finish. It was bottle conditioned to ensure smaller bubbles for a smoother texture on the tongue, and unfiltered to create a creamier, fuller mouth feel. Winner of Silver in the 2018 Georgia Wine Trustees Challenge for the Sparkling category.
$26 per bottle
2015 Insider - Barrel Aged
Just like our Winter Harvest Insider this bubbly wine was made with Georgia apples, but was fermented and aged in an oak barrel for 6 months, thus giving a bigger more rounded body and a more golden color. The subtle spiciness of the oak speaks well to the crisp acids of the apple to make a balanced sparkling beverage with a long finish. Available by the bottle only.

With fruit from the Sonoma Valley in California, we did this in a west coast style putting it through MLF making it nice and buttery through the body. Being in the latter days of its life cycle, this Chardonnay has dropped away its fruity character leaving a nutty earthy tone perfect for those wine drinkers who seek soft on the palette and earthiness over fruitiness . Aged in neutral oak barrels to smooth out the finish, this wine makes for a Chardonnay that has a taste all its own. Come enjoy this beauty before its all gone - Only 30 Cases Remain

Ongoing Special for $75 Half Case
This is a classic blend of Georgia Wildflower Honey mead and Georgia grown apple wine with a slight amount of sugar to fill out the mouth feel. The round powerful body and nose of the mead balances beautifully with the high acid profile of the apples to create a bright easy drinking honey flavor.

Sourced from Lake County, California, this Merlot is brand new to bottle and so just starting its second phase of the aging process with plenty of potential. It has notes of cherries with some floral tones on the nose and a body full of darker fruits like plum and raspberry mixed with licorice on the body. Though young and possessing a slight tannic edge this is a solid wine from a classic grape.

2012 Cabernet Franc
This beauty is officially sold out. It had a great run and will be remembered fondly by the many who drank it. Onwards and Upwards!
This wine was produced by our good friend Sarah Hunt in conjunction Accent’s own Tristen Vanhoff using grapes from the same farm as Accent’s 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon in the Russian River Valley out in Sonoma County, California. In need of a good home we began carrying this wine in May of 2018. It is a very savory wine weighing heavier on the earthy rather than fruity side. Aged using all new American and French Oak, it is has a medium tannic oak edge that has mellowed beautifully over its years in bottle. Perfect for pairing with almost any meal (like a hearty bowl of chili, or a nice juicy steak), we welcome this classic varietal with a fresh American take.
This wonderful little experiment is officially SOLD OUT! But worry not, as now that it is road tested we will be making much more during the 2019 apple harvest season that will be still better and more bold. Rest well in the memories of those that loved our first 2017 vintage, wander on!
A unique white port wine made from 100% Georgia apples, possibly one of the only wines of its kind. It was naturally fermented to 16% alcohol and then fortified to 17% with a slight amount of French Cognac, and slightly sweetened in line with a traditional port wine using apple concentrate. Full flavors make for a smell of black truffles and roasted apple on the nose, and strong notes of caramel dipped apples and cinnamon notes on the body, backed up by a slight smokiness provided by the Cognac. Perfect for an after dinner beverage or with a cigar. It is remarkably smooth and has at least a decade of aging potential. It is a limited 45 gallon run and so is in short supply.
The wine That started it all
2009 Winemaker’s Reserve Syrah
Made during an internship by co-founder of Accent, Tristen Vanhoff out in Sonoma California, this big smooth beauty was put into 5 Hungarian and French oak barrels before returning to Georgia to reunite with his wife. Lacking the funds to ship the barrels across the country, his mentor agreed to look after them until he did.
About 4 and half years later in 2013 Tristen teamed up with his brother in law Tyler Barnes to start Accent. So equipped with a gracious loan from Tristen's mother, the two were able to cover the shipping, buy bottles and labels and had 120 cases of premium well aged California wine. Wholesaling all but 35 cases they were able to use that revenue to purchase the rest of their fruit and juice for making the other flagship wines that eventually came on offer with the opening of their farm winery Accent Cellars in July of 2017.
An excellent showcase for how well a Syrah can age, it is silky and big with a finish that lingers luxuriously in the back of your palate. A must drink for any fan of bold red wines.
