2019 Chaleur Blanc
COLUMBIA VALLEY AVA
Seattle Times Northwest Wine of the Year
This energetic, canary yellow wine presents a complex nose with aromas of grapefruit, golden hay, lemon zest, petrichor and pastry dough. 2019 Chaleur Blanc offers fresh fruit flavors of apricot and white peach on the palate, deliciously balanced with savory herb notes of basil and tarragon. This vintage is well proportioned throughout, with integrated barrel notes and the cuvee’s traditional crisp acidity.
“…over the past dozen years or so it has been, according to my ratings, the single finest white wine produced in Washington State.”
Stephen Tanzer of Vinous
“It’s the best example of this style in the state.”
Sean Sullivan of Wine Enthusiast
“One of the top Bordeaux white blends from the New World.”
