2016 Sagemoor Chardonnay

One of the oldest vineyards in Washington State planting started in 1968 today Sagemoor has over 1,100 acers of grapes planted. Sagemoor Farms lies 10 miles north of the City of Pasco. The Vineyards are on bluffs overlooking the Columbia River with a southern exposer.  This is a warm site as sites go in Washington State with natural cooling effect of the Columbia River. Being a warmer site the wine is a bit softer with bigger mouth feel than the Chardonnay we make from Wyckoff vineyards in the Yakama Valley a cooler site.  The wine was barrel fermented stirred on the lees, for 3 months in a combination of one and two year old French and American oak barrels. The American oak barrels are specially coopered for Chardonnay.  This Chardonnay as well as the other Chardonnays we offer will be a great accompaniment with the Thanksgiving turkey or just by itself.

2016 Wyckoff Chardonnay

Wyckoff farms is in the lower Yakima Valley north of the town of Prosser the vineyard was planted in the late 1970s. The site is a cooler site making for intense fruit and good acidity.  As a winemaker this is one of if not my favorite sites for Chardonnay.  The wine was barrel fermented stirred on the lees, for 3 months in a combination of new and used French and American oak barrels. The American oak barrels are specially coopered for Chardonnay.  This is a perfect wine for the holiday season the crispness of this wine lends it a wide range of foods from turkey to your favorite hors d’oeuvres for the season.
