The inspiration for 14 Hands wines recalls a time when wild mustangs roamed freely on the hills of eastern Washington State. This unique and beautiful landscape that gave these unbridled horses their spirit and tenacity now feeds their vines. This Chardonnay offers bright aromas of apples and pears with a touch of caramel and spice. Elegant fruit flavours give way to hints of butter and vanilla, ending with a juicy, fresh finish.
