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 2019 Nine Hats Chardonnay was sourced primarily from the Yakima Valley’s French Creek and Boushey vineyards. It is a cooler AVA that helps retain the Chardonnay’s acidity and elegance. Complex, expressive and beautifully balanced, this wine is fermented for 9 months on the lees and aged in French oak barrels, concrete eggs and stainless steel for added layers.
