We love it with: 🧀🌶🍗
Size: 750 mL
Grape: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris
Region: Columbia Gorge AVA, Oregon
Vinification: From Hiyu: The parcel is planted to heirloom Wente Chardonnay clone cuttings taken from Celilo vineyard on Underwood Mountain - and smaller amounts of Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir. We released a small, 600 liter cuvée of very dense Chardonnay from 2016, but the rest of these wines from 2015 to 2020 have now been assembled in a series of 500 liter puncheons to age together. The various vintages represent a kaleidoscope of styles and ways of looking at the site. In some vintages the wine saw extended maceration on the skins, in others it was directly pressed. Some vintages were very fresh, while others showed more salty and oxidative characters. From us : The resulting wine is both rich and fresh, with delicately balanced acidity and depth. Daffodils. Sunlight. Salt. Purity and presence in the glass.
