Crisp and refreshing with bright fruits and zippy acidity. Filled with aromas and flavors of green apple, Asian pear, Meyer lemon, flowery nectar, and pineapple.

Winemaker Notes
Our Chardonnay grapes were lightly pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery. The juice was allowed to settle for a few days before inoculation with a varietal specific yeast strain. The juice was fermented at a cool 53°F for two months and allowed to sit on the yeast lees for another few weeks. Without the influence of oak or ML, this wine shows crisp minerality and clean varietal fruit characteristics. This crisp and refreshing Chardonnay is filled with aromas and flavors of green apple, Asian pear, Meyer lemon, flowery nectar, and pineapple. It has bright fruits and zippy acidity with a nice lingering finish making it a perfect aperitif on a warm summer day.

Production Notes
The 2014 growing season was the warmest vintage recorded in Washington State! A very hot and dry summer throughout lead us to start picking in August, a lot earlier than usual. We picked the majority of our grapes for the Steel Chardonnay in August under night skies to try and avoid the summer heat. Bright flavors and nice acidity were achieved in this ideal Chardonnay vintage.
