Dance Non Vintage

2021 2021 Dance

$42.00 / Bottle Purchase

Winemaker Gilles Nicault has experimented with Chardonnay since the beginning of the Long Shadows collaboration to perfect a proprietary fermentation process and stye found in this wonderfully expressive wine.

Tasting Notes:


A deeply aromatic Chardonnay offering exotic tropical fruits, white peach and a hint of honey on the nose. The mouthfeel is rich and viscous delivering layered flavors of stone fruit, dried apricot, baking spice, and freshly baked bread. Beautifully focused, with just enough acidity to lift the expression and complexity of the wine while leaving a pleasant fruitiness and hint of minerality on the finish.

The outstanding 2021 Dance Chardonnay is mostly sourced from the Gamache, Boushey and French Creek Vineyards. Stored in cement eggs as well as neutral and new French oak barrels, this is a stunning new wine that did not undergo full malolactic fermentation. Right away toasty oak and melon tones fill the nose alongside lemon zest and shades of creme brûlée. The palate is silky smooth and refined with incredible elegance and richness. Finishing extremely long, with good freshness, this is delicious Chardonnay to savor now and over the next ten years to come.

Sweet spices, vanilla custard and freshly-sliced peach introduce the 2021 Dance Chardonnay. This blends richness with verve, showing depths of ripe orchard fruits and sweet mint on the palate that create a display of pure pleasure. Hints of raw almond and baked apple linger as the 2021 finishes long, clean and refreshing. This walks the line of opulence yet lands on the side of balance. Nicely done.

The wine's aromas of peach and beeswax smell like the best candle ever. The round and smooth texture guides flavors like grilled lemons and lychee, with just a touch of honey.

A creamy Chardonnay with inviting aromas of lemon pie, peach, vanilla cream, apricot and honeysuckle. It's full-bodied, peachy and textured, with refreshing acidity to balance.

Wente clone Chardonnay from French Creek Vineyard, east of Prosser and Boushey Vineyard, north of Grandview, were chosen for the vibrant, lively character that defines Chardonnay grown on both these sites.
