We have crafted the absolute best Chardonnay that Washington has to offer from Celilo Vineyard, long revered for producing iconic Chardonnay fruit. Located in the sub-alpine appellation of the Columbia Gorge, Celilo Vineyard boasts 40 year-old dry-farmed vines grown in volcanic loam, with a terroir that is perfectly moderated by the mighty Columbia River.
Light goldenrod reminiscent of warm sunlight gleams in the glass, followed by scents of ripe pineapple, key lime, popcorn, and melted beeswax. Aged sur lie for sixteen months, The Mother emanates a luxurious mouthfeel with flavors of golden raspberries, vanilla, and preserved lemon on the palate, with just a touch of unctuous French oak.
A bright and juicy acid carries lingering notes of petrichor and stony minerality through the everlasting finish. Perfectly balanced with palate-coating depth accompanied by palate-cleansing acidity, this stunning Chardonnay is our profoundly elegant pièce de résistance.
