2017 Chardonnay Columbia Valley

Elegant and inviting with vibrant aromatics of fresh jasmine, white peach and hints of baking spice. Flavors of dry apricots and quince highlight a creaminess on the palate that is well balanced by the wine’s lively acidity. The 2017 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. The wine was aged for 9 months on the lees in French oak barrels and cement eggs.

Pinot Gris

Columbia Valley
Sourced from select Columbia Valley vineyards, where a constant breeze moderates temperatures to capture fresh flavors and give the wine its vibrant mouthfeel. A light squeeze of the grapes on the press and a cool fermentation is used to enhance the Pinot Gris’ racy character. This medium-bodied Pinot Gris offers vibrant aromas and flavors of white peach, orange blossom, honeysuckle and ripe citrus that lead to a pleasantly crisp finish.

Columbia Valley
This Chardonnay offers beautiful aromas and flavors of white peaches, jasmine flowers and ripe stone fruits. A vibrant entry reveals a creaminess on the mid-palate that complements its rich character and elegant finish. Sourced from top vineyards in the Yakima Valley, the French Creek Vineyard provided texture and richness and the Boushey Vineyard its brightness and acidity. The wine was aged for ten months in 35% French concrete eggs, which contribute to its freshness and minerality. A broad mid-palate and depth in the finish can be attributed to the 65% that was aged in French oak barrels (half new, half neutral).

Julia’s Dazzle Rosé

Columbia Valley
Fresh and lively with bright aromas and flavors of orange blossoms, strawberries and ripe melon complemented by a racy acidity that lingers across a clean, off-dry finish. Grapes from select Columbia Valley vineyards were left to hang until they developed a bright tint, then gently pressed and the clarified juice slowly fermented at cool temperatures to retain the wine's intensely vibrant aromatics and flavors.
