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.

Had this along with other Washingtons at a local tasting. Smells sweet floral with apricot. Medium to full bodied. Taste of ripe peaches and melon. Will definitely revisit! Great well balanced flavorful blend. For more, please visit http://dionyshius.blogspot.com/2012/05/washingtons.html

Apple and pear on the nose with a slight bubblegum quality. Ripe and juicy with good acid. Light citrus tones. Bright and flavorful. Nice! 2/18/12

A plush framework of soft tannins supports the red and dark fruit flavors that leisurely give way to subtle notes of baking spice and mocha on the finish.

This refreshing white blend displays intense aromas of peach compote with tropical and floral nuances. On the palate, flavors of fresh apple, pear and melon are balanced by juicy acidity and ends with a bright, vibrant finish.
