WINEMAKER NOTES: The 2015 vintage was marked by record high temperatures across eastern Washington. Due to this intense heat, we harvested earlier in the season to retain acidity and aromatics. After hand picking, the grapes were pressed at low pressure to avoid harsh phenolics. Upon completion of native fermentation in tank, we blended in a portion of steel-fermented Chardonnay to add depth to the wine. We racked the wine to small stainless-steel vessels and continued stirring lees on the wine for an additional 6 months, resulting in great character and roundness.
