Additional Information on Airfield Fly Girl 2013

Winery: Airfield

Region: Washington State

Washington state is a fascinating region when it comes to American wine production, with the majority of their produce coming out of the desert-like eastern half of the state. This expansive region has a unique climate produced by the rain shadow of the Cascade mountain range, and here we find over ninety-nine percent of the state's vineyards which hold a wide range of classic grape varietals including Merlot, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and others. Today, there are over forty thousand acres in Washington under vine, and the industry of the state is going from strength to strength due to the increasing popularity of the wines which are produced here. Over six hundred wineries in the state take advantage of the well irrigated vineyards which flourish there, and these numbers are expected to grow quickly over the next decade.

Country: United States

Whilst there are several strains of native grape varietals in the United States, it was the introduction of the European species which prompted the country to begin producing wines on a large scale. Over the past few centuries, experimentation and cross-breeding has produced great successes in regards to the quality and suitability of the fruit grown in states such as California, Oregon, Washington and New York, and the past few decades have seen New World wines from the United States reach much higher standards. Arguably the finest United States wines have always come out of California, where the climate and terrroir is most suitable for fine wine production. The masterful blending of classic grape varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, amongst others including Syrah and Chardonnay, have had world beating results in recent years, prompting many to suggest that there has never been a better time for buying and drinking United States wines.

Appellation: Yakima Valley

When it comes to United States' wines, the state of Washington is widely regarded as being home to many of the country's finest examples of elegant, high quality and characterful produce. Within Washington State, we find the beautiful wine region of Yakima Valley, home to an impressive number of wineries which produce over forty percent of the state's wines. Despite such figures, Yakima Valley is very much a region dedicated to quality above quantity, and the wineries which operate there take great care to ensure that their wines help uphold the high reputation of the region. The dry and temperate climate of Yakima Valley makes it ideal for the cultivation of many different fine grape varietals, helping keep Washington State a region associated with variety, innovation, quality and excellence.
