More about this wine from Columbia Valley, Washington

In 1976, Tom Hedges married Annie-Marie Liégeois in Champagne, France. Fast forward to 1989 and the young couple purchased fifty acres on Red Mountain in the Yakima Valley and planted Bordeaux varietals AKA Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay. It turns out Washington State it is the perfect place for a couple married in France to make their mark on the American wine scene.

This is a serious Chardonnay. This is a wine you get into and sip and sip and sip and you ponder the dream of building your own wine brand on a classic wine estate. The nose is marked by lively blood orange, tart caramel apple, and the perfect touch of buttered toast. But 100% not overly butter-y and oak-y. The sipping begins with a nice tart-ness, which leads you into a full and creamy texture that'll make you scream dreamsicle as your tastebud receptors go crazy.
