2018 Christina - Den Hoed Winery
In 2017 we were challenged to call an audible and shift our fruit source to Wallula for one vintage. 2018 marks the return to Christina's rightful place at our Kenny Hill estate vineyard in the Mill Creek area of the Walla Walla Valley. This year's iteration is produced entirely of Clone 95 fruit hand harvested from Block 17 on October 10th. We gently whole-cluster pressed to tank for cold settling then racked to a blend of new and used French oak barrels for primary and partial malolactic fermentation. The wine was then aged sur lie for approximately 9 months before bottling on July 15, 2019.
