2010 Chardonnay

Vineyards:

We like to use multiple vineyards in our quest to produce our very unique, consistent, signature Chardonnay. By sourcing from many terroirs, some cooler and some warmer, we consistently craft the complex, rich, and full bodied yet deliciously crisp, refreshing Chardonnay we are so famous for. An unusually cool 2010 Spring & Summer lead into a consistently warm Fall, producing balanced, elegant wines with lower alcohol and higher acidity.

56% Weinbau Vineyard ~ Wahluke Slope, close to Mattawa

24% Crawford Vineyard ~ Near Benton City, Yakima Valley

16% Oasis Vineyard ~ Near Benton City, Yakima Valley

4% Grenache Blanc, Boushey Vineyard ~ Near Grandview, Yakima Valley


Tasting Notes:

Peach and pear take center stage with this bright Chardonnay! Possessing a clean nose that kicks things off with gentle hints of oak, caramel apple, and floral perfume, it is balanced with the pretty acids of apricot, star fruit and ruby red grapefruit flavors. Exceptional Burgundian winemaking results in exceptional wine - our 2010 Chardonnay is again an extraordinary one whose richness is balanced by good acidity and light minerality. Grenache Blanc brings an intense vibrancy to the structure & body, its zesty tang punctuating the tropical fruits and tart finish. This sought-after Chardonnay is one you can and should stock up on!

Rich Fettucine Alfredo, Truffle Mac & Cheese, or mussels are a perfect compliment for our 2010 Chardonnay. If you're feeling decadent, Foie gras and our 2010 Vigneron Select Chardonnay are a match made in Heaven!
