53% Viognier, 47% Roussanne

The perfect balance of fruit and acid for great drinkability.

Production notes

The Viognier was picked twice, once on the 11th of October and the second time the 13th of October. Roussanne was also picked twice but on the 28th of September and the 11th of October. Roussane was the star of the vintage which is why the percentage is abnormally high for the Freyja. The two picks were staggered roughly two weeks apart showing how cool the early fall was. Voignier struggled to ripen and was ultimately thinned down on several occasions in the vineyard with the goal of evening the ripening of fruit as there were large variations in single plants let alone rows.

All Gård wines are the product of Lawrence Vineyards designated by the Columbia Valley AVA in Royal City, Washington.

Winemaker Aryn Morell, a Washington native, honed his skills in Napa Valley working with some of the country’s most notable producers, including Silver Oak, Joseph Phelps, Quintessa, Husic, Chimney Rock, Chappellet, Stags Leap and countless others in winemaking and the chemical engineering of wine as part of a consulting company for which he worked.

Aryn joined the Gard team as head winemaker in 2011, and spends considerable time in the winery’s estate vineyard with Josh Lawrence, Gard founder and viticulturist.  With an uncompromising attention to detail, Aryn carefully crafts Gard wines with an eye toward the unique expression of terroir of the estate vineyard, and earns frequent accolades and high acclaim for his wines.

In 2014, Aryn and Gard founders Josh and Lisa Lawrence launched a winemaking facility in Walla Walla, M&L Production, where all the Gård wines are produced, bottled and aged. Aryn also makes wine for Matthews Estate, Tenor, Alleromb and Mullan Road, a Washington project for Cakebread Cellars of California.
