THE VINTAGE

After warmer than average 2012 and 2013 vintages, 2014 in Eastern Washington was one of the warmest seasons in decades with favorable temperature conditions extending into fall. Overall, 2014 was a pleasant growing season; ripening was excellent for all varieties in all locations.

FLAVOR PROFILE

“This lighter style Chardonnay begins with bright aromas of sweet lime and pears with a touch of baking spice. Refined fruit flavors are accentuated by

ample acidity that give way to subtle hints of butter, caramel and vanilla.” - Keith Kenison, Winemaker

RECOMMENDED FOOD PAIRINGS

Roast Chicken, Lemon Pepper Salmon, Seafood Alfredo, Caesar Salad
