This wine pays homage to the female pilots of World War II, and it is made in a style that is just as vibrant as the women that soared through the sky.

Tasting Notes

The 2022 Flygirl White is a refreshing, light-bodied blend of 65% Pinot Gris, 21% Chardonnay, and 14% Viognier. Vibrant aromatics of peach juice, lime zest, fresh pineapple, and floral blossom envelop the glass. The palate shows expressive flavors of grapefruit, poached pear, candied apple, and honeydew melon. The wine’s brisk yet balanced acidity creates a clean, crisp finish highlighting bright citrus notes with a hint of banana.

Vintage Notes

The 2022 vintage in the Yakima Valley was a bit of a roller coaster. A mild winter extended into spring with early frost periods and winter-like conditions in April. The cool spring delayed bud break by a few weeks and caused delayed growth in the vineyard as we moved into summer. Each vineyard block was meticulously managed to ensure a ripe crop by harvest. We lowered clusters per vine and allowed for more sunlight exposure. By mid-July, temperatures finally started warming up and led to record growth in a short amount of time. Fortunately, warm summer temperatures extended into fall, helping to lengthen the growing season and allowing the grapes to continue to ripen. Harvest ended up being delayed approximately three weeks from a typical year. We gratefully did not experience any fall frost events, so the grapes had extended hang time on the vines to achieve optimal ripeness and excellent flavor development. Another positive note on the 2022 vintage is that Washing- ton State did not see any significant smoke impact from wildfires. Overall, the 2022 vintage displays ripe flavors, bountiful fruit aromas, and balanced acidity. The wines can be enjoyed in their youth, or they can cellar for many years to come.

Winemaking Notes

Each element blended into our 2022 Flygirl White was harvested at optimal maturity and gently pressed before beginning fermentation. Each varietal was fermented and aged in stainless steel to maintain freshness and varietal characteristics. The fermentation temperatures ranged from 60-62 degrees, and the average length of fermentation lasted about 25 days. Cooler ferments help us achieve these exotic fruit aromas and create a clean, crisp finish. After fermentation, each varietal had the wine’s lees stirred back into the wine once every two weeks for three months. This process helped naturally soften the wine, create a rounder mouthfeel, and enhance the texture of the wine. When creating the 2022 blend, we wanted each varietal to play a unique role in this blend to provide some complexity to this overall easy-drinking wine.
