Boise native Meredith Smith took over as head winemaker a few weeks prior to the start of the 2016 harvest, and her debut vintage for Ste. Chapelle serves notice of delicious things in store. Grapes for these eight barrels of chardonnay came from 400-acre Skyline Vineyard, and there’s light oak with toast and nuttiness alongside apple and lemon/lime acidity. This earned a gold medal and best of class at the 2017 Idaho Wine Competition, and these Panoramic Series bottlings are available at the Sunnyslope tasting room and can be found in throughout Idaho.
Production: 200 cases
