Tempranillo is the most popular and important red grape varietal in its native homeland of Spain. Tempranillo has also begun to steadily increase in popularity in the Pacific Northwest, and our Desert Wind vineyard provides ideal conditions for this varietal to truly shine. The grapes were fermented in open top bins with twice daily punch downs to carefully extract the tannins and wonderful fruit flavors. After fermentation, the wine was aged for 18 months in barrel. The resulting wine is medium-bodied with fruit flavors of strawberry and plum.

The 2018 Chardonnay was picked late in the year for optimal ripeness and fermented cool in stainless steel to preserve the fruit flavors and provide a clean, refreshing palate. After fermentation, the Chardonnay went through 100% malolactic fermentation and aged sur lie in 100% french oak barrels. The resulting Chardonnay is rich with notes of tropical fruit, brioche, and a hint of vanilla.

Our Heritage Series Chardonnay is completely barrel fermented in French oak and undergoes full malolactic fermentation. After fermentation, the wine continues to age in barrel, sur lie, for up to 9 months. This process gives the wine increased complexity, richness, and introduces oak flavors from the barrels. The end result is a full-bodied, complex wine with tropical fruit flavors, vanilla, and toasted sugar.

While typically used in the production of port, our Touriga Nacional has been made into a rose-style wine. Our 2019 Touriga Nacional Rose was hand picked and directly pressed, with a maximum of 4 hours of skin contact. The wine was fermented cool in stainless steel to preserve the fruit flavors and maintain a fresh, clean palate. The resulting wine is light and crisp with fruit aromas of strawberry and grapefruit, and a pronounced minerality on the palate.
