2016 Chardonnay

2016 Chardonnay
2016 Chardonnay

The classic Chardonnay grape excels in Washington State. In 2016 we worked with French Creek Vineyard in Prosser, which boasts some of the oldest vines in the State. The low yields of these ancient vines returned a wine with great purity of fruit and endless concentration.

Our Chardonnay is fermented in French oak barriques in the Burgundian tradition.  Lees contact was encouraged through regular battonage (lees stirring) to enhance the texture of the wine. Once fermented the wine was racked, topped off and returned to the barriques where it was aged on the fine lees for a total of 11 months.  It was bottled July 25th 2017.

The wine exhibits primary aromas of citrus, lychee and stone fruit intermingled with secondary vanilla, cream and almond markers. The barrel ageing contributes to a fleshy texture and appealing roundness with good acidity integration and a long finish. This wine is ready to enjoy on release and may even evolve further in the bottle for the couple of years.
