THE WINE
Our Reserve wines are sourced from the best Yakima Valley vineyard lots for aging in our finest French oak barrels. Hogue 2014 Reserve
Chardonnay opens with aromas of citrus, vanilla, cinnamon, apples, pears, and toasty almonds. The palate is rich, silky, and concentrated
with vanilla, cream, and spice, balanced by crisp acidity. Pair with grilled salmon or pasta alfredo.

THE VINTAGE AND VINEYARDS
2014 was another hot, early year in Washington State, but Chardonnay showed a preference for the heat and made very nice wine. The
grapes were picked with full malolactic fermentation in mind, so in this case we selected vineyards with full leaf cover and thus higher levels of malate. Yakima Valley vineyards, including Brooks, Sunnyside, and Roskamp, were selected on flavor at the upper Brix range to result in a 14.5% alcohol wine that does not seem hot due to the flavor concentration in the fruit.

THE WINEMAKING
This wine represents a return to traditional Chardonnay winemaking. It underwent 100% malolactic fermentation and was fermented in
French Burgundy barrels. The wine was aged sur lie, stirred every other week during the 10-month aging process, and gently racked
only once.
