Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 growing season started out slow with cool temperatures in the spring. The summer was consistent and warm. Hot August weather provided great ripening conditions getting the fruit ready to harvest. Due to the slow start to the vintage, harvest was on average 10 days later than in recent years. Fermented entirely in French oak barrels, our 2008 Columbia valley Chardonnay balances the richness of barrel aging with the crisp acidity of Columbia Valley vineyards.

Food Pairing: Try pairing our Chardonnay with seared halibut, roasted chicken or creamy pasta dishes.
