Personality: A classic example of freshness balanced by palate weight. Tangerine, lime zest, mineral.

Vineyard: Strand Vineyard in the Naches Heights AVA, north of Yakima, Washington. Loess Soils at 2000ft elevation. Sustainably farmed, no herbicide use.

Making of: The grapes are direct-pressed and vinified separately. Fermented and aged in a mix of 228-liter and 500-liter older French oak barrels. Blended, bottled without fining or filtration. A small sulfur addition at bottling is the only addition.

Winemaker's Note: “One of my personal favorite white wines from 2021. The silty loam soils of the Naches Heights always provide softer versions of normally acidic white wines.”
