Like the actress who repeatedly brings home the Oscar, the 2015 Disruption Chardonnay is perfect in any role. You can dress her up to complement a serious meal, or keep things casual for an afternoon in the park. The grapes come from one of the coolest regions in Washington State, the Ancient Lakes AVA. Chardonnay likes cool weather and finds an extraordinary balance of fruit, acidity and minerality in the calcium-rich basalt derived soils.
VINEYARDS 94% Evergreen Vineyard & 6% Two Mountain Vineyard
TASTING NOTES On the palate, the wine is round and elegant with fine balance. There is bright citrus fruit and a background of white stone. Vinification in stainless steel keeps the style lively (20% went through malolactic fermentation) while 8 months on the lees, with weekly hand-stirring, imparts a creaminess and softens the texture. Think Key-Lime pie with a graham cracker crust and meringue as light as air. FOOD PAIRINGS Pair it with shrimp scampi with plenty of garlic or after the meal with pungent cheeses.

"Most of this wine comes from esteemed Evergreen Vineyard in the Ancient Lakes appellation. It charms with aromas of green apple, Bosc pear and mineral. The flavors are medium bodied and pure, with a lightly creamy feel and a zing of acidity stitching it all together. The balance is spot-on." Score on the Disruption 2015 Chardonnay
