14 Hands White Blend Horse Heaven Hills Hot To Trot White 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

■ Grapes were sourced from vineyards throughout Washington state, including the Horse Heaven Hills, Wahluke Slope, Columbia Valley and Yakima Valley. ■ Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Semillon were fed directly into pneumatic presses where the juice was quickly liberated from the skins and seeds. ■ After 24-48 hours of cold settling, the juice was clean racked away from the grape solids and inoculated with yeasts to initiate temperature controlled fermentations lasting 14-20 days. ■ Each variety was fermented separately, (mostly in stainless steel) to promote fresh flavors and aromatics. A small portion was fermented in neutral barrels and aged on the lees to enhance mouth-feel. ■ The final blend was created just a few weeks prior to bottling. The wine was fined and filtered for stability and freshness.

Very well balanced Washington state white blend. Nice acidity, gold delicious apple, lemon curd with some minerality on the back end.

Tasting Notes:

This fragrant wine presents aromas of apples and citrus, with light floral notes. Fresh flavors of pear, melon and lemon zest are balanced by crisp acidity, ending with a bright and lively finish.”
