Product Description

Vineyard Notes
“Our Rock Island Chardonnay is a savory yet approachable Chardonnay from mature vineyard sites in the Columbia Valley, offering depth and concentration to the wine. Barrel fermentation, along with sur lie aging, captures the alluring characters of Chardonnay with a fresh appeal.”– Kendall Mix, Winemaker
Production Notes
The grapes were gently pressed and the juice was cold settled. After racking off the solids, the juice was inoculated, racked to barrels and allowed to ferment slowly for approximately 30 days until dryness. At that point, the juice was chilled to halt fermentation and stabilize the wine.
Tasting Notes
AROMA: Refreshing ripe pear and apple, with hints of pineapple and nectarine. Complimented by some oak aromas of coconut and vanilla. FLAVOR: Crisp, refreshing entry, fresh fruit driven and rounded mid palate, elegant, rich, pleasing finish.
