Latta Kind Stranger Chardonnay Roussanne
Kentucky native Andrew Latta landed in Washington State 15 years ago after a globe-trotting wine apprenticeship tour, and in 2011, founded Latta Wines to showcase his signature style. In recent years Andrew has seen the national landscape shift and feels it's as important as ever to be a real kind stranger in the world. So he started the Kind Stranger line, proceeds of which benefit Mary’s Place at the local level in Seattle and the International Rescue Committee on a broader scale.

Latta Kind Stranger Chardonnay 2017
82% Chardonnay, 18% Roussane
Fermented with indigenous yeasts in neutral barrels then aged sur lie for 16 months. High elevation sites littered with caliche and broken basalt contribute freshness and minerality to the wine. Chardonnay does the heavy lifting, providing structure and citrus notes, Roussanne accents with exotic fruit and complexity.
