“Our Indian Wells Chardonnay delivers an appealing tropical fruit character typical of warm sites like the Wahluke Slope. I like this Chardonnay’s ripe pineapple and butterscotch flavors and rich, creamy texture. Try it with scallops, scampi or pasta with rich sauces.” – Bob Bertheau, Winemaker
Ripe grapes were lightly pressed and inoculated with yeast designed for accentuated, fruit-forward flavors. 100% sur lie aged for six months to integrate the fruit and oak flavors and provide a rich mouthfeel. Barrel aged in 25% new American and French oak barrels. Malolactic fermentation also took place to add softness, balance and depth.
“The Indian Wells Cabernet is our warm climate ripe, jammy “New World” style of Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine typifies the Wahluke Slope region with dark fruit aromas and flavors. Syrah added an enhanced richness and concentration to the wine.” – Bob Bertheau, Winemaker
Ripe grapes were destemmed and sorted with a cutting-edge grape receiving and separation system designed to gently deliver fruit to the fermenters, allowing for pure varietal expression and soft mouthfeel. Gentle pumpovers were used to extract optimal flavor and color and minimize harsh tannins. Each individual fermentation tank is tasted daily to evaluate the development of the tannins and structure and find the right moment to drain the wine from the skins. Aged for 14 months in 51% new French and American oak barrels.
