2018 Otherworldly Chardonnay by Forgeron Cellars

THE SUMMER OF 2018 WAS ONE OF THE HOTTEST YEARS ON RECORD THR OUGHOUT THE EASTERN SIDE OF WASHINGTON. WE EXPERIENCED MANY WEEKS OF ABOVE 95-DEGREE TEMPERATURES. ONCE AUGUST CAME AROUND IT FINALLY STARTED TO COOL DOWN, WHICH LENGTHENED HANG-TIME, ALLOWING FOR COMPLEX FLAVOR DEVELOPMENT. THE RESULT IS A TRULY REMARKABLE VINTAGE ACROSS THE BOARD. EACH OF OUR 2018 LOTS EXHIBIT BRIGHT, FRESH NOTES, AND A SEEMINGLY INNATE BALANCE BETWEEN FRUIT AND ALCOHOL.

In the vineyard

THE FRUIT WAS SOURCED FROM TWO OF OUR FAVORITE VINE YARDS, CRAWFORD AND WEIN-BAU. CRAWFORD, LOCATED IN THE YAKIMA VALLEY IS NOTED FOR ITS VERY FINE, SANDY SOIL WHICH PRODUCES HIGH ACIDS AND LOTS OF FLAVOR. WEINBAU, LOCATED IN THE WAHLUKE SLOPE, PRODUCES DEEP, RICH AND COMPLEX GRAPES FROM 35+YEAR-OLD VINES. COMBINED THEY ARE A MATCH MADE FROM HEAVEN!
