Fourth-generation Columbia Valley farmers Butch and Jerry Milbrandt honed their passion and knowledge of the land growing apples and tomatoes, but they knew that their farm was meant for grape cultivation and great wines. In 1997 they embarked on a journey to transform their land into vineyards, and in so doing became instrumental in the establishment of the Wahluke Slope and Ancient Lakes AVAs. Today, the winery has fifteen vineyards in the Columbia Valley and is widely regarded as one of the premium producers of fine wine in the region.
Evergreen Vineyard comprises 60% of the acreage in the Ancient Lakes AVA and is pitch-perfect for the creation of white wines that deftly balance opulent fruit with subtle, terroir-driven flavors. At approximately 1100-1300 feet above sea level, it has a higher elevation than vineyards in the Columbia Valley's other AVAs, which makes it a bit cooler and gives it wider diurnal temperature variations. The fruit grown here is ripe yet high in acidity. AND THAT SOIL! Rich in basalt and a type of limestone known as caliche, it imparts distinct mineral notes to the finished wines.
Washington craftsman extraordinaire Kendall Mix is the consulting winemaker for today's stellar offer; his mad skills and knowledge are definitely evident here. Fermented and aged on the lees for 9 months in seasoned oak barrels, the 2018 Milbrandt Vineyards Chardonnay Evergreen Vineyard is rich and round, with aromas and flavors of Granny Smith apple and Bartlett pear again taking center stage; notes of brioche, lemon peel, and stony minerality are supporting players. Vibrant acidity weaves its way throughout the palate and brings the wine to a long finish.
