Varietals: 76% Chardonnay 24% Viognier

Vineyard Notes

2016 was a bumper crop of great quality in another record warm year. The wines from 2016 are emblematic of the warm season and return to a delicious Washington state style with ripe, bright flavors supported by balanced acidity. This bright wine is the kind to enjoy young since it carries itself easily into many food settings.

Winemaker Notes

Both the Chardonnay and the Viognier were harvested at optimal maturity, at cool night temperatures in late August. Chardonnay was harvested first, and then the Viognier juice was added to the fermentation a week later. We chose specific white wine yeast VL3 to enhance the flowery notes and fruitiness of the wine. Fermentation was slow at 58 degrees, maintaining the delicate aromas and fruit. We prepared for bottling in July to preserve the bright varietal character.
