Waitsburg Cellars 2014 Chevray
The Aromatics may be looked at in musical terms, as a band of skilled artists making beautiful melodies. The 'instruments' are the grape varieties — Chenin Blanc, Pinot Gris, and Riesling. Like many fine tools, they are well-aged, giving richer, rounder tones to their flavors. The 'players' are myself, the winemakers, and the growers — everyone who contributed to the final result. That is in the bottle — a taste of old vine, single vineyard, 
oak-free deliciousness. These wines express the detail, subtlety and depth rarely found at this price. We hope you enjoy the performance!
— Paul Gregutt
 
TASTING NOTE: 
Don't let the high alcohol scare you; this utterly delicious wine shows not a trace of heat. It was aged in neutral oak, and has acquired a lovely gold hue. It's lush and rich with tangelo, apricot and peach fruit, concentrated and shot through with delicious honey and caramel flavors. Immediately appealing, silky and long, this has the ynm factor in spades.
 
VINTAGE NOTE:
The 2014 Washington State harvest proved to be spectacular with a record crop level and excellent quality. All factors needed for success came together perfectly: cool nights, lots of warm weather in the growing season, and rain limited mostly to the shoulder seasons. Harvest started the third week of August and wrapped up in the second week of November. The crop across the state was heavy, yet bountiful with quality. Our vineyard team enjoyed weather that enabled them to pick at will, affording perfect flavor, acidity and sugar levels.
