Revelry Chardonnay 2021, Conner Lee Vineyard, Wahluke Slope, Washington

Planted in 1991, Chardonnay thrives in the sandy loam soils of Conner Lee Vineyard. Fermented and aged on the lees for 180 days – undergoing a complete ML fermentation – this wine remains incredibly fresh, with an elegant density and electricity all at once. Conner Lee is a name synonymous with some the best Chardonnay ever produced in Washington State. The vineyard sits to the east of the Wahluke Slope, and was planted under the guidance of Walter Clore, the pioneering “Father of Washington Wine.” It was by a simple stroke of luck that we came to know that there was an opportunity to work with this vineyard. Fermented in stainless barrels on its lees, completing both primary and partial-malolactic fermentation, it is a rich, and yet very fresh wine. Savory aromatics give way to honeysuckle, fresh cut pear, baked apple and chilled cream. This wine has the very best traits of one of the most classic grapes in the world. To say it is delicious is would be an understatement. 100% Chardonnay.
