2017 Three Rivers Reserve Chardonnay, Columbia Valley
Sourced exclusively from Gamache Vineyard in the Columbia Valley, our 2017 Reserve Chardonnay welcomes you with aromas of brioche, Bartlett pear and hints of Jasmine blossom. The palate fully delivers with a creamy, viscous mouthfeel that highlights the fruit flavors and is complemented by a vein of pleasant minerality.

2017 started on the same track as 2016: bud break occurred a bit ahead of normal and was followed by a hot summer. The warm summer months led to cooler conditions in September and October. We picked the grapes for our Chardonnay on September 26th.
