Tasting notes

Light straw color, brilliantly clear. Peach, gooseberry, lemon curd, citrus blossom and just a tinge of orange marmalade. Zippy and bright, with flavors of just ripe lemon, peach and a tasty touch of fresh biscuits. So much about this wine is drinkable. It’s light, but not insignificant. It’s refreshing, thoughtful and a breezy summer day in the park. Absolutely enjoyable.  

Production notes

100% SS fermentation to dryness at cool temperatures to retain the maximum fruit aromas and flavors. . Fruit was sourced from several Columbia Valley vineyards including the Yakima Valley and Columbia Valley AVA’s. No malolactic fermentation.

Harvest Notes: The 2017-2018 winter was extremely mild, fairly dry and quite the opposite of the snow and ice ravaged winter we saw the year before. This mild winter really tricked the vines and other early Spring bud pushing plants to sprout out quickly. Hedges’ estate vineyards were pruned early (beginning in late January) in anticipation for this early bud break and the vines really responded well. We added a few more Biodynamic practices into the mix, such as home brewed horsetail tea spray, which helped us escape some mildew pressure in June. The heat of summer and long sunny days advanced ripening, but the maturation period of early September and October was mild which made for a harvest that you could pick fruit at a slow and steady pace. Overall the 2018 vintage is going to be a good one!
