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. No malolactic fermentation was induced, keeping the acidity and structure in place.
66% Badger Mountain Estate Vineyard, Columbia Valley
34% Areté Vineyard Chardonnay, Wahluke Slope
Lovely aromas of white flowers, pear, peach, and limestone minerality. On the palate, flavors of pear and stone fruit that linger nicely alongside a hint of lemon zest and minerality. Very well balanced, and finishes with a touch of acidity.
