The 2015 Enchantress Chardonnay is from the nearly 40-year-old Wente-clone Chardonnay vines of French Creek Vineyard in the Yakima Valley. Each vintage this vineyard provides us with the intense fruit that allows us to produce this old-world-styled Chardonnay. The wine is fermented and aged in neutral French oak barrels for 11 months. It remains on the original lees the entire time to increase mouthfeel and richness. The resulting wine is golden in color, and has aromas and flavors of fresh cut green apple and pears, along with exotic spices and ripe, tropical fruit like pineapple and guava on the palate. The fruit component is backed by wet stone minerality from the underlying basalt bedrock at French Creek. Enjoy now through 2025.

Wine AdvocateMade from 100% Chardonnay, the 2015 Chardonnay The Enchantress is fresh and steel, with vibrant notes of citrus blossom, sappy herbs and white flowers. Barrel fermented and aged 11 months in neutral French oak, drink this racy effort anytime over the coming 3-4 years.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine comes from 35-year-old vines at French Creek Vineyard. Light aromas of spice, herb and candlewax are followed by a medium-bodied palate brightened by lively, lemony acidity. Put it on the dinner table to see it at its best.
