2018 Badger Mountain Chardonnay, USDA Organic, No Sulfites Added

$16.00

Winemaker's Notes

With harvest dates ranging from late September to early November, the fruit had a very extended hang time that allowed us to craft a very balanced wine with beautiful rich flavors while maintaining a great undertone of acidity.  Both lots of Chardonnay were cold fermented with PDM yeast in our stainless-steel upright fermenters. Nmalolactic fermentation was induced, keeping the acidity and structure in place.

Blend/Vineyard Notes

100% Chardonnay

66% Badger Mountain Estate Vineyard, Columbia Valley

34% Areté Vineyard Chardonnay, Wahluke Slope

Tasting Notes

Bright aromas of citrus, apple, and kiwi layered with a whiff of limestone minerality that leads to a rich and nicely structured palate. Fresh citrus balanced with green apple, nectarine, and honey that linger nicely alongside a hint of minerality that is very well balanced, finishing with a nice touch of acidity.
