Press / Wine Critic's Reviews
Notes from the Winemaker:

“Our Indian Wells Chardonnay delivers an appealing tropical fruit character typical of warm sites like the Wahluke Slope. I like this Chardonnay’s ripe pineapple and butterscotch flavorsand creamy texture. Try it with scallops, scampi or pasta with rich sauces.”

• Over half of the Chardonnay fruit came from vineyards throughout Washington’s Wahluke Slope.
• Our most northern growing area, the Wahluke Slope, is bordered on both the west and the south by the Columbia River.
• The region’s warm days cause the grapes to assert sweet citrus and tropical characteristics, while the cool nights promote good structure, balance and flavor intensity.

• Ripe grapes were lightly pressed and inoculated with yeast designed for accentuated, fruit-forward flavors.
• 100% sur lie aged for five months to integrate the fruit and oak flavors and provide a rich mouthfeel.
• Barrel aged in 35% new American and French oak barrels.
• Malolactic fermentation also took place to add softness, balance and depth.
