Bright aromas of citrus, apple, and pear layered with a whiff of limestone minerality and lemon zest that leads to a rich and nicely structured palate. Fresh citrus flavors are balanced with green apple, banana, and apricot that linger nicely alongside a hint of minerality, finishing with a nice touch of acidity.

87% Badger Mountain Estate Chardonnay, Columbia Valley

With harvest dates ranging from late-October to early-November, the fruit had a very extended hang time that allowed us to craft a very balanced wine with beautiful rich flavors while maintaining a great undertone of acidity. Both lots of Chardonnay were cold fermented with PDM yeast in our stainless-steel upright fermenters. No malolactic fermentation was induced, keeping the acidity and structure in place.
