The blend for this bottling is 73% Celilo Vineyard from White Salmon, Washington and 27% Del Rio Vineyard fromGold Hill,Oregon. Celilo provides the acidity and high-toned aromatics while Del Rioprovides plush textural qualities and bass notes. Celilo Vineyard is a unique vineyard situated on a 1,000 foot bluff overlooking theColumbia River.     It lies on the south face of Mount Underwood, which is currently an inactive volcano. The soil is pulverized basalt, extremely porous and loose, which promotes deep rooting. The vineyard was planted in 1983. Unlike the Chardonnay grown in the hot eastern  desertof Washington, this is a much cooler site. As a result, the fruit retains more acidity and the wine displays a clean mineral character with an expansive texture.
