Chardonnay

Columbia Valley
Elegant and inviting with vibrant aromatics of fresh jasmine, white peach and hints of baking spice. Flavors of dried apricots and quince highlight a creaminess on the palate that is well balanced by the wine’s brightness and lively character. The 2020 Nine Hats Chardonnay was sourced from the Yakima Valley’s French Creek and Boushey vineyards. A touch of Sauvignon Blanc from Headquarter Vineyard lifted the wine's overall liveliness. It is a cooler AVA that helps retain the Chardonnay’s acidity and elegance. Complex, expressive and beautifully balanced, this wine was fermented in French oak barrels, concrete eggs and stainless steel for added layers and aged for 9 months on the lees.

Columbia Valley
Known for its distinctive black purple hue, this Columbia Valley Malbec is rich, ripe and multi-layered. We added Petit Verdot from Dionysus Vineyard to provide depth, backbone and complexity. Muddled blueberry and blackberry aromatics combine with savory flavors and hints of spice. Sourced from the Wahluke Slope, this wine has the structure to carry its weight throughout while softening gracefully with age. Aged 18 months in 70% neutral, 30% new oak barrels.
