Long Shadows Vintners winemaker, Gilles Nicault, and founder, Allen Shoup, have been experimenting with the Columbia Valley's top vineyards to produce a style of Chardonnay they both enjoy. Complex, expressive and beautifully balanced, this wine is 100% barrel fermented in French oak.
The 2017 Nine Hats Chardonnay was sourced primarily from the Yakima Valley's French Creek and Boushey vineyards. It is a cooler AVA that helps retain the Chardonnay's acidity and elegance. The wine was aged for 9 months on the lees in French oak barrels and cement eggs.
