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, starfruit and ruby red grapefruit flavors.

In the vineyard

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 (but also deliciously crisp) refreshing Chardonnay we are so famous for.

 

Chardonnay: 56% Weinbau Vineyard (Wahluke Slope); 24% Crawford Vineyard (Yakima Valley); 16% Oasis Vineyard (Yakima Valley)

 

Grenache Blanc: 100% Boushey Vineyard (Yakima Valley)

 

Appellation Columbia Valley

In the cellar

An unusally cool 2010 Spring and Summer lead into a consistently warm Fall, producing balanced, elegant wines with lower alcohol and high acidity. Exceptional Burgundian winemaking results in this 2010 Chardonnay.

Varietal 96% CHARDONNAY, 4% GRENACHE BLANC
