Vineyard: Boushey Vineyard
Appellation: Yakima Valley
Varietal: 100% Grenache Blanc
Located at high elevation, the celebrated Boushey Vineyard produces wines of distinct character with balanced acidity. Layered soils and long, cool, slow ripening time allow for complex flavor development. 2011 was the first harvest using Boushey fruit for Syncline Winery. We are so impressed by the quality, delicious complexity and brilliant acidity, we plan to keep working with this vineyard for the long term.
The fruit was hand harvested and transported to the winery on September 30th. It was whole cluster pressed and settled overnight. The juice was then racked to a new Atelier French oak, extra light toast, 4 year aged stave puncheon (500L), a twice filled French Acacia puncheon (500L) and one of our concrete “cubes” from Burgundy for native fermentation. After fermentation completed the puncheons were topped up and the remainder was aged in stainless steel. No malolactic fermentation occurred. Bottled in March 2018.
