2021 Haden Fig
This vintage of Juliette was entirely sourced from Mahonia Vineyard in the un-official South Salem Hills. As is our practice with the Haden Fig Chardonnays, this wine was fermented in barrel without baronage and only racked when the selection was made between our Juliette and Willamette Valley designations after 10 months. The WV went to the blending tank and this Juliette was racked (dirty) into other neutral barrels.
This year, our experimentation with the Juliette included blending and holding the wine in tank for an extended period toward the end of its elevage. So, unlike previous iterations of Juliette, we racked this wine (clean) into a stainless-steel tank after 14 months where it rested for an additional 2 months. It’s delicious!
