YEAR: 2015

BLEND: 100% Chardonnay

SOURCE:
Pace Vineyard, Yakima Valley AVA, Washington

ABV: 14.5%

WINEMAKER NOTES: The 2015 vintage in Washington state was the warmest to date. While such intense heat provided great ripeness, Washington’s famed diurnal flux left much higher acidity than would be expected in such a hot vintage. Given how ripe these grapes were, we chose to ferment and age this wine in mostly new and 1-year French oak barrels. After a partial malolactic fermentation, we stirred the lees for three months for added creaminess.
