2016 Chardonnay
Wahluke Slope, Washington State

Purchase | Tech Sheet

Tasting Notes
Aromas of lemon custard, lychee and orange blossom lead to crème fraîche and honeysuckle on the palate. Finishing with clean and crisp citrus flavors.

Bud break occurred much earlier than normal, with above average temperatures leading through late August. At this point we experienced a period of cooler temperatures extending harvest into early November with well-balanced ripeness.
