BackgroundWith more than a century of winemaking and farming experience, High Heaven Vintners believes in growing great grapes first to make amazing wine. Located in Eastern Washington State, High Heaven Vintners is inspired by the natural backdrop that surrounds their vines. From its protected location in the Rain Shadow formed by the Cascade Mountains, High Heaven Vintners is protected from harsh elements, creating a warm, sunny, dry climate ideal for grape growing. High Heaven Vintners wines are estate grown & bottled; this means 100% of the grapes are grown or controlled by the winery.
VinificationWhole cluster Chardonnay grapes are lightly pressed and free-run juice is cold settled for two days. The wine is then aged on malolactic lees for seven months before being moved to stainless steel vats for 18 months.
