Winemaker Notes

This 1999 chardonnay was produced from grapes grown at the Woodward Canyon estate vineyard (25%) in the Walla Walla Valley, and the Conner Lee vineyard (75%) near Othello in south central Washington. The grapes were hand picked, sorted and whole cluster pressed. The average yield was three tons per acre and the grapes were harvested in late September of 1999.

This wine was 100% barrel fermented in new (60%) and six month old barrels (40%) from Sirugue, Francois Freres, and Louis Latour. The wine shows beautiful flavors of ripe peach and nectarine with the acidity of a granny smith apple. Whole cluster pressing gave wonderfully rich fruit which integrates very nicely with vanilla, cream, and toasted hazelnut. The new oak is there but does not overwhelm.

This is another beautifully proportioned chardonnay from Woodward Canyon. While this wine may certainly be consumed now, it will improve greatly with a years in bottle. I recommend drinking this wine over the next two to four years or today for lunch.

Woodward Canyon, Columbia Valley, Washington
Image of winery
Woodward Canyon Winery, named for the canyon Rick’s family farmed and where the Estate Vineyard is now located, was established in 1981 by Rick Small and his wife, Darcey Fugman-Small. Woodward Canyon was the second winery in the Walla Walla Valley and the Smalls were instrumental in the process of obtaining federal approval of the Walla Walla Valley appellation.

The winery has consistently produced premium, age-worthy, award-winning Cabernet Sauvignons and Merlots as well as Chardonnays. From the outset, Rick determined that quality would take precedence over quantity.

Consequently, Woodward Canyon has remained small. Woodward Canyon is located in Lowden in the Walla Walla Valley appellation. The tasting room is a restored 1870's farmhouse.

Woodward Canyon is a founding member of the Walla Walla Valley Wine Alliance and VINEA, the Walla Walla Valley Winegrowers' Sustainable Trust.
