Beschreibung

- 90 Punkte WINESPECTATOR, Tim Fish: „Juicy and rich, this offers pear, clove and toasty spice flavors that fan out on the plump finish. Drink now. 30,000 cases made.“

 

- 90 Punkte VINOUS, Owen Bargreen: „Sourced from a host of vineyards including Evergreen, Roza Hills and Moxee, the 2019 Chardonnay Ch was aged for nine months prior to bottling and underwent native yeast fermentation. The outstanding nose features Bananas Foster, pear and vanilla cream tones. At a mere $17 retail, this offers really good value.“

 

- JEB DUNNUCK: „Lots of pure honeycomb, white flowers, and honeyed citrus notes emerge from the 2019 Chardonnay Ch, a medium-bodied, supple, nicely textured, balanced Chardonnay. I wouldn't push the aging curve too much, yet it's going to benefit from 6-12 months of bottle age and have at least 2-3 years of prime drinking.“

 

- 93 Punkte JAMES SUCKLING: „A straightforward, fruity chardonnay with sliced ripe apple and some vanilla character. It’s medium-bodied with a firm texture and a pleasing, juicy and flavorful finish. Hint of toasty character. Barrel-fermented with native yeasts. Drink now.“

Notizen des Weinguts: Tasting Notes by Winemaker Charles Smith "Beautiful. Aromatic. Layered. A bouquet of blossoms. Tangerine, apple, pear, and wisteria right to your face as Italian melon, Gala apple, clove, and lemon meringue soothe your mouth. A delicate cascade of minerals washes over the palate. Complex and complete as you swoon with satisfaction." Vineyards (100% Chardonnay, Columbia Valley, Washington State White Wine, 14.0% alcohol) Frenchman Hills (33%): This vineyard was planted in 1998 and is about a 30-minute drive north of the Wahluke Slope, which is one of the warmest areas in the Columbia Valley. However, Frenchman Hills Vineyard is a cooler site, partly because of its higher elevation at 1650 feet. It also does not easily frost and has limestone and broken basalt soils at the top of the vineyard. Roza Hills (32%): At an elevation of 1350 feet, in a natural southern sloping bowl that sits on the southern slope of the Rattlesnake Hills, Roza Hills was planted in 1977. The majority of the vineyard is planted in loamy silt to chalky soil with broken basalt chunks interspersed. High River (28%): Located on the east side of Columbia River, High River has sandy soil with volcanic rock and a temperate micro-climate. Moxee (7%): Planted in 1973, Moxee is located east of Yakima and north of Moxee. The west-facing slope is about 1450 feet elevation. The soil is Moxee silt loam with broken limestone. Vintage The 2019 vintage was on the cooler side as it started slow with a later-than-usual bud break and continued on to be fairly moderate throughout the year. Some vineyards had issues with an October freeze a bit earlier than usual, but our high-elevation vineyards have great air drainage which allows us to extend the growing season late into October without freeze. This yielded fantastic ripening and some awesome wines with incredible balance and character. Overall, we are excited about the wine produced in 2019, which has brought us more finesse, incredible flavors, and lovely balance.
