Swick Wyd? Chardonnay 2020
Chardonnay grown on sandy loam from Yakima, Washington in the Columbia Valley at 1600 feet elevation. Grapes are direct pressed and fermented with native yeast. Ferments are worked by foot one to two times a day with no temp control then aged in neutral French oak barrels for eight months. A small sulfur addition before bottling is the only addition to this wine. No filtration.
“Some nice barely ripe pineapple and d’anjou pear notes. Lots of fresh acidity.” – Joe Swick
