'98 FYSALíDES (fee-sa-leed-es).  The introductory wine to our new and very limited sparkling project, sourcing fruit from the Willamette Valley.

FYSALíDES translates to "tiny bubbles" from Greek.  This cold climate blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir has been a long time coming.  In partnering with vineyards for upcoming vintages in the Willamette Valley, we came across a project that we needed to be part of.  Two vintages, 1998 and 2000, of OLD wine that had been part of an extended tirage project from years past, still on lees and yeast!  Once disgorged and finished with the dosage in March, we brought these relics back up to Walla Walla to share with you! 

We hope you enjoy this rare treat, until we are ready to introduce the 2017 vintage!
