2016 Chances R Chardonnay

2016 Chances R Chardonnay
2016 Chances R Chardonnay
Tasting notes

Bright and concise with plenty of white rose petal, dandelion, and melon in the bouquet with a lively mouthfeel that is has concise notes of lemon jolly rancher, and honeysuckle. This is a crowd pleasing wine that is meant to be drank in only the most pleasant of settings.

Production notes

All Watermill wines are hand picked late in seasons for maximum ripeness. They are then gently pressed in small volumes and undergo inoculated fermentation in 1 to 1.5 ton small lot fermenters. The wine sits on the skins for more than two weeks where it undergoes additional maceration through punch downs and pump overs for color and tannin integration before being transferred to barrel.

Other notes

Chances R marks a new era of production and reach for Watermill. With the acquisition of Reyna and Keystone vineyards in the Columbia Valley and Windy Point Vineyard in the Rattlesnake Hills in 2017, Watermill is now able to introduce our audience to a wider range of appellations within the Pacific Northwest. Chances R is a drinkable but structured chardonnay that will allow drinkers to experience Watermill Wines at a lower price point without sacrificing quality. The wine was named Chances R because it is of such high quality and such low price that in the words of our winemaker Andrew Brown, “chances are we aren’t going to make any money off it”.
