Veteran Washington winemaker Mike Januik works with three clones of Chardonnay from owner/grower Tom Alberg’s scenic Stillwater Creek Vineyard on the Royal Slope in the Columbia Basin. The 10 months of surlie aging in French oak barrels, 44 percent of them new, accounts for aromas and flavors of pina colada, pineapple and citrus with butterscotch, slight toast and enjoyable acidity.
Production: 1,951 cases
