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