white peach, and lemon zest on the nose
"White peach, lemon zest, fresh nutmeg, marzipan, and soft caramel on the nose. Swirling adds notes of creme brulee and a hint of sweet spice to the citrus-driven fruit. The palate offers layers of silky texture, consistently growing in volume while maintaining a precise and polished feel. The finish rewards with length and weight. A joy to finally release to our fans."

aromatics of white tea, lychee, and spring flowers
"Aromatics of fresh white tea, spring flowers, lychee, honeycomb and tropical core. Swirling reveals chalk, raw baking spices, white peach and lemon sugar. The palate is angular and layered with trpical fruits, baking spices and chalky minerality, and finishes with terrific persistence. A wine we are thrilled to finally release."

Bright aromas of citrus and stone fruit
The 2019 Jaine Blanc de Blanc was crafted exclusively from one of the most highly regarded and recognized sites for Chardonnay in Washington state – Connor Lee. Conner Lee is located on the upper east end of the Wahluke Slope atop sandy glacial marine sediment deposited by the Missoula of the Pleistocene era. This site is known for its sandy loam soils and its relatively cool, long, and even ripening season that produces wines of superior texture, balance and complexity. Conner Lee is fully sustainable and uses organic farming methods whenever possible.
The vines were hand-harvested on the night of August 29th, 2019, before being whole-cluster pressed. The wine was settled in tank for 48 hours before racking to start the primary fermentation, then fermented entirely in stainless steel and with no malolactic fermentation. A light amount of sulfur was used to allow a second fermentation in bottle. The wine was racked off early to maximize its aromatic potential and cold stabilized, then disgorged just over 15 months later on April 12, 2021, with zero dosage. Only 384 cases were produced.

The 2020 Jaine Sauvignon Blanc was crafted from three vineyard sites
in the Columbia Valley: Bacchus, Boushey, and Laura Lee. Bacchus is a fully sustainable vineyard and leading source of old vine Washington grapes. This higher elevation vineyard gives way to varied soils, which contributes complexity to the wine. Boushey is a Yakima Valley AVA vineyard, offering mild temperatures and layered soils that allow for extended hang time on the vines and result in well-balanced wines with pure fruit expression. Laura Lee is a lower elevation site located in the Royal Slope AVA and is sustainably farmed. Each vineyard was hand harvested early in the mornings of August 28th – September 15th, 2020 to maintain freshness.

The 2020 Jaine Rosé was crafted exclusively from Thunderstone Vineyard, a small vineyard parcel located on the Royal Slope of Washington State’s Columbia Valley. The vineyard is fully sustainable and uses organic farming methods whenever possible. The vines were hand-harvested early in the evening of October 6th, 2020.
Upon arrival at the winery, the grape clusters were de-stemmed and macerated for 24 hours before pressing. The Grenache and Mourvèdre were fermented separately and then blended after 6 months before preparing the wine for bottling. The Rosé was fermented and aged entirely in stainless steel to maximize its aromatic potential. Over the course of 8 months, this wine was individually evaluated over 40 times by our winemaking team, and finally bottled with a light fining
and filtration between June 8th and 10th, 2021. Only 1,090 cases were produced.

The 2020 Jaine Chardonnay was crafted from two vineyard sites in Washington State’s Columbia Valley: Conner Lee and Stillwater Creek. Located on the upper east end of the Wahluke Slope atop sandy glacial marine sediment deposited by the Missoula floods of the
Pleistocene era, Conner Lee is one of the most highly regarded and recognized Chardonnay sites in Washington State. Stillwater Creek is an award-winning vineyard located on a steep, south-facing rise on the Royal Slope, and is best known for innovative vineyard management and unique selection of varietal clones. Both vineyards use sustainable and organic farming methods whenever possible. The vines were hand-harvested early in the mornings of September 8th – 23rd, 2020.

The 2019 Jaine Chenin Blanc was crafted from one small vineyard parcel in the Columbia Valley, located just outside of the tri-cities on the east side of the Columbia River. The vineyard is fully sustainable and uses organic farming methods, whenever possible. The vineyards were hand-harvested late in the evening of September 17th. Upon arriving in the winery, the vineyard lot was hand-sorted and whole-cluster pressed before settling for 48 hours. The grapes were then fermented in a concrete egg before being transferred into neutral French oak barrels for aging. Over the course of these 9 months, this wine was stirred once a month and individually evaluated over 40 times by our winemaking team. It was nally bottled in the summer of 2020 and only 40 cases were made.
