Heritage Chardonnay (on premise only)
Heritage Chardonnay heralds from the Columbia Valley, where the land is perfectly suited for growing grapes, with optimal growing conditions with hot days allowing grapes to ripen and cool nights where acidity develops. This means that Heritage is well balanced with firm tannins, crispy acidity and ripe fruit structure, ready for immediate enjoyment.
The Heritage 2016 Chardonnay come from one AVA in the Columbia Valley, Yakima Valley, from a single vineyard, Willard. This is selected for the lush aromatics, bright fruit, earthiness and mineral characteristics in the Chardonnay.
Our Director of Viticulture, third-generation Washington farmer, David Minick, oversees all vineyard management for consistent, perfectly ripe grapes across all of our vineyard sites. All vineyards receive the same environmentally responsible care with minimalist intervention.
