Tasting notes

Citrus blossoms, white peach, white tea and a hint of lychee in the background. Swirling brings up caramelized citrus and honeycomb, while the palate shows beautiful texture and a pithy but complicated mouthfeel of citrus and stonefruits. The finish is bright and fresh with lingering notes reminiscent of key lime pie.

Production notes

A more classic blend of Freyja for us with Viognier leading the way at 75%. We only picked each varietal once with Roussanne being picked 8 days before the Viognier. Both fermented in stainless steel to dryness before making a blend. The wine was aged for just over 5 months in stainless and honestly one of my favorite Freyja’s to date for how showy the wine is at this point while maintaining its crispness for warm weather and a broad spectrum of food pairings.

Gård Vintners is 100% estate grown sustainably at Lawrence Vineyards in the Royal Slope AVA. Lawrence Vineyards features seven distinct vineyard sites with elevations ranging 930 feet to 1,675 feet. The combination of elevation and south-facing slope provides a great framework for grape production, while the diversity of the seven locations delivers a high level of complexity to Gård wines. Lawrence Vineyards is certified sustainable by Vinewise.org.

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.
