Tasting notes

Gorgeous rich golden color. Lively blood orange and lush caramel apple, hints of cinnamon, and buttered toast. There is a fun fresh mineral component to this wine, almost like fresh rain on concrete. The palate has a nice linear entry, which leads you into a full and creamy mid-palate. There is churned butter, some fresh citrus and apple flavors with a touch of spice on the finish with just a hint of that blood orange. This is a serious Chardonnay for traditionalists with a very forgiving edge.

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 Columbia Valley and the Yakima Valley AVAs. One-third malo-lactic fermentation and aged on oak.

Harvest Notes: 2019 threw a few surprises when it came to the weather! After 2+ months of snow starting in Mid-February, the summer stayed mild. We were a bit behind going into veraison and the ripening period of September, which was a cold month. We traded our usual Indian summer and warm fall for a chilly September and a freeze on October 10th and 11th that hit a lot of areas pretty hard. Luckily with our early pick philosophy and intuition of picking based on flavors instead of numbers, it put us ahead of the curve and we had everything in before the freeze. Overall, 2019 is proving to be a cooler Washington state vintage, with wines that are showing a lot of balance and restraint.
