This exceptional, and exceptionally priced, wine just received 92 points from the Wine Enthusiast making it one you’ll want to cellar up on. Aged in a twelve hectoliter oak tank handcrafted by a small cooperage in Burgundy, the fruit is held rather than overpowered. With 93% Chardonnay and 7% Maria Gomes -- a stunner of a grape -- this wine gives off notes of delicate florals and greenery and tastes of Granny Smith apple and sun-ripened pear. A touch of viscosity on the tongue and fine balance comes from aging the fruit on its lees. Drink with Seared scallops, fancy Grilled cheese & tomato soup, grilled vegetables and stone fruits, and, of course, friends. Foundry vineyards celebrates the art of the celebrated Walla Walla Foundry, which casts bronze pieces for world-renown artists ranging from Tom Otterness to Roy Lichtenstein, with the art of fine winemaking. Consulting winemaker Ali Mayfield left her job as a UPS truck driver to pursue her passion for winemaking and honed her craft at Long Shadows Vintners and Corliss Estates before joining Foundry Vineyards in 2010. If the scores from her inaugural vintage are any indication, she’s a winemaker you’ll want to add to your “watch” list.
