WINE: On the nose, breathe in aromas of tropical fruit and apple blossom. Flavors of juicy pineapple and toasty vanilla dance in this rich, layered wine. The touch of French oak adds notes of baking spice and cardamom. Fermented in barrel and allowed to complete its natural malolactic fermentation process completely.

VINEYARDS: Our 2019 Chardonnay is crafted from two of Washington’s best vineyard sources: the Evergreen and Sundance vineyards. These sites offer a dichotomy of climates, producing grapes with two very different flavor profiles. The cooler Evergreen fruit is aromatic with bright flavors and a ripping acid structure. The site sits at 1,400 feet above sea level. The vines were planted in 1997 in fine sand, along with silt, sandy loam, and layers of caliche. The Evergreen juice sees a touch of French oak. Sundance is warmer, producing ripe, fruit-forward, tropical flavors. Planted in 1998, the site sits at 1,100 feet above sea level. The site is topsoil over gravel, sand, and broken-down basalt with slightly more caliche than other vineyards in Wahluke Slope. Hang times are lengthened here, allowing for more concentration of flavor and texture. The already rich Sundance juice was vinified in stainless steel. The finished blend produced a beautifully balanced and delicious wine.
