Winemaker's Notes

The Wine The elegant aroma shows lively chardonnay fruit of apples, pineapples and lemons with hints of malolactic butterscotch and toasted oak.

Located high up on the Rosa, its relatively shallow, well-drained soils are suitable for producing only small crops of high quality fruit. Planted in 1982. The Appellation The Yakima Valley, located within the larger Columbia Valley appellation, stretches some 100 miles from the Cascade foothills east along the Yakima River to the Columbia. The vineyards are generally located on the hillsides above the valley floor.
