"I craft this Chardonnay to showcase the balanced fruit of the Snake River Valley: fresh citrus aromas are followed by a silky texture and long, bright finish. I layer together wines from multiple fermentation vessels: stainless steel, French Oak and Black Locust barrels. They combine to respect the fruit flavors and add a whisper of spice to the aromas. It’s a new twist on an old classic but at its center is balance, something that never goes out of style."

Tasting notes

Aromas of poached pear, papaya and ginger give way to flavors of nutmeg and a hint of toast. Flavors echo the aromas with layers of warm, sweet fruit and spice. The body is medium in weight with a rich finish.

Production notes

Grapes are hand-picked in September, pressed whole-cluster. Juice is settled to clarify, then put into tank or barrels for fermentation. Native and commercial yeasts are used. Fermentation takes place in 30% stainless steel, 65% neutral barrels and 5% new oak (one French oak barrel and one Black Locust barrel). 40% of the barrels undergo malolactic fermentation. Agred in the barrels for 8 month. Wine is filtered and bottled in May, 2018. 

OTHER NOTES

Think rich comfort foods for this wine, such as chicken and waffles, poutine or perhaps pork belly.

When to drink: Enjoy now and/or cellar through 2028.
