~~TASTING NOTES “Stainless steel fermentation makes this a crisp Sauvignon Blanc. The wine offers bright fruit character of melons and herbs. This wine is a favorite with oysters.” Bob Bertheau, Head Winemaker

VINTAGE

• 2014 in Eastern Washington was one of the warmest seasons in decades.

• The ripening period in September cooled to more typical weather for the region. In October temperatures rose again to one of the warmest

October months on record.

• Overall 2014 was an ideal growing season; ripening was excellent for all varieties in all locations.

VINEYARDS

• Sourced from vineyards throughout the Columbia Valley, including our Horse Heaven Vineyard.

• Columbia Valley vineyards lie in the rain shadow of the Cascade Mountains and receive just 6–8 inches of rainfall annually.

• Warm, sunny days and cool evenings create ideal conditions for aroma and flavor development in the ripening grapes.

WINEMAKING

• Yeasts specifically designated for Sauvignon Blanc were used to initiate the three-week fermentation and release varietal aromas.

• Stainless steel fermented to preserve Sauvignon Blanc’s delicate fruit character.
