2014 The Betrayal
Chardonnay
Domanico Vineyard
Yakima Valley AVA
13.6% Alc

The Betrayal is made from some of the oldest Chardonnay vines in Washington State. The grapes came from Domanico Vineyard in Prosser, Washington -- a small, family-owned vineyard that has been yielding premium wines in Washington since the mid-1970s.  

The name “The Betrayal” stems from this winemaker's desire to make a Chardonnay that can honor its place of origin while bringing out the best from this varietal by utilizing winemaking techniques that would coax out the beautiful flavors and finish.  

This 100% Chardonnay was aged in French oak barrels for 18 months. The result is a wine that has a beautiful golden straw color and scents of warm apricot and cantaloupe.  
The flavor is warm and creamy with hints of baked apples and graham crackers, finishing with smooth tropical fruit.
