Abeja Chardonnay Washington State 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Cool climate sites provide the fruit for this Chardonnay. Whole cluster pressing, barrel fermentation, and aging sur lie results in a Chardonnay with elegance and richness that is balanced with nice acidity, making it an excellent companion to food. Not yet reviewed; 2012 vintage rated 94 points and 'Editors' Choice' by Wine Enthusiast: ...exceptional quality for the price... a generous wine with green apple, lime and white peach; add in notes of butter, brioche and baking spices... 660 cases produced.

Spanish for bee, name is pronounced 'ah-BAY-ha'.

Once seriously dilapidated, all of the original farm buildings have been carefully restored with an emphasis on craftsmanship and longevity. Creative use of salvaged materials adds interest and sets the stage for renewed purpose in these old buildings, which now house our winery and our guests. Read less
