Description 

Tranche Chardonnay
A fragrant and compelling nose with lifted aromas of white peach and nectarine, white flowers and crushed oyster shell. Intense stone fruit flavors saturate the palate with a tremendous depth of flavor. The high natural acidity of the Celilo fruit brings a firm grip while light toasted elements give warmth and structure. The wine finishes with excellent length and saline minerality.


Winemaker Notes

Harvested from the high-altitude Celilo Vineyard in the cool Columbia Gorge AVA, ourChardonnay was whole-bunch pressed into new and used French oak barriques and concrete egg-shaped fermenters. Regular stirring of the lees helped the native yeast ferment the wine to dryness, while imparting rich texture and outstanding depth to the palate. The wine underwent complete malolactic fermentation in barrel and was aged on lees for 11 months prior to bottling.
