A delicate and perfumed nose with a light body with flavours of white peach and citrus fruit. This has the varietal potential to age beautifully - drinking very well now, but will continue to develop for the next 5 - 8 years.
Airfield Estates is a fourth-generation family farm based in the Yakima Valley in Washington State. They cultivate a wide range of premium grapes and craft estate-grown wines of exceptional quality and value.
As the name suggests, Airfield Estates has ties to aviation. A portion of the family property operated was a training base for hundreds of Army Air Corps pilots during WWII.
Established in 1968, the estate was one of the first commercial vineyards in Washington State. Its founder, H. Lloyd Miller, had an immense love for trees and planted 24 birch trees strategically around the farm. Over the years most of the original trees disappeared, with the exception of one. This lone birch has become a cherished landmark on the family’s farm. Today, this tree stands guard over the vineyards, which lie beneath its limbs and is the inspiration behind their Lone Birch wines.
