Chardonnay, Charles & Charles

Coming off of two rather hot vintages, 2015 was warmer still setting the record for the warmest vintage on record in Washington State. Spring started earlier with bud break ahead of schedule, ripening Chardonnay early yet evenly. The 2015 Chardonnay remains very much a cooler climate, Mâconnais-style Chardonnay with white fruit and minerality, but with warmer vineyard sites there is power and fullness as well. All lots were on their lees for 8 months and also went through malolactic fermentation.
