Vintage 2016 was long in the Columbia Valley. Success was due to our cool nights during ripening and experienced farming care.
A long history with this 1980 vineyard afforded us good vine care and our predictable harvest. Harvested October 10, we enjoyed
the full character of the vintage. Fruit color was an ideal shade of green turning golden with ripe flavors and balanced acid.

Harvested and soaked on the skins for extract before we pressed, we fermented cold in tank as whole juice developing the wines for smooth texture. Fermented with VL3 yeast to emphasize its flowery tones, we aged it for four months in a cement egg on lees then filtered for bottling. Bottled young for freshness this wine will age for five years as a fruity wine aging into honey and savory flavors.
