 The 2017 growing season was noted for cool spring temperatures that led to a later bloom, but higher temperatures at the end of summer and near fall provided plenty of heat and sunshine to allow the Chardonnay to fully develop and ripen. Our ‘Heritage Series’ Chardonnay was barrel fermented in 100% French oak (25% new), and underwent full malolactic fermentation to produce a creamy, complex, full-bodied wine with complementing oak flavors. The wine was then aged sur lie for seven months in barrel to enhance the mouthfeel and add increased depth to the flavors. Notes of honey, tropical fruits, and a bit of vanilla are present, with soft acidity and a clean, long finish.

Our Dry Rosé features three Portuguese varietals, with Touriga Nacional being dominant then Tinto Cão and Souzão. These varietals are uncommon in Washington, and even more uncommon as a Rosé, which makes our Dry Rose truly one-of-a-kind. The grapes were hand-picked and pressed with minimal skin contact, and then fermented cool in stainless steel. This resulted in a light-bodied, fresh and crisp tasting rosé with notes of strawberry, minerals, and grapefruit.
