2021 Jaine Evergreen Vineyard Chardonnay, Ancient Lakes AVA, Columbia Valley, WA
“The Jaine Evergreen Vineyard Chardonnay is bright and pale yellow in color. It has an aromatic bouquet of fresh cut hay, stone fruit and fresh lime peel that leads to a palate that is beautifully balanced, with a fine and focused acidity that is reminiscent of the wines of Chablis. Powerful, yet elegant, this wine finishes with chalk, dusty stone and yellow flowers.” -Ali Mayfield, Winemaker
Fruit for this wine comes from one of the best white-wine vineyards in the state. The aromas are interesting for the variety, with notes of kiwi, papaya, caliche and canned pineapple, largely focusing on the tropical. A mouthful of full-bodied fruit follows. - Sean P. Sullivan
100% Chardonnay. Crafted from Evergreen Vineyard in the Ancient Lakes AVA. Evergreen is a sustainably farmed high-elevation vineyard with varied soil types, which contribute complexity to the wine. Upon arrival at the winery, the Chardonnay was pressed, fermented, and aged entirely in stainless steel to focus on the purity of fruit. After seven months of aging, the wine was bottled.
