Winemaker Gilles Nicault of Washington’s Long Shadows Vintners has fashioned a vibrant, affordable sipper. Perfumed with honeysuckle, Meyer lemon, apricot and guava aromas, the nose also harbors a vein of wet-stone minerality. Sun-drenched citrus, including bright orange peel, washes across the broad palate with ripe, juicy stone and tropical fruit and hints of savory herbs. This one is perfect for the beach or the pool.
2019 Dance - The aromas intrigue on the nose, with notes of clarified butter, straw, spice and pumpkin. The palate shows depth and breadth to the stone fruit flavors but also with sophistication. The balance is exquisite. For those looking for a full-bodied Chardonnay where the oak doesn't steal the show, this wine is a shining example. 93 points,Wine Enthusiast, Editors' Choice
2020 Cymbal - A lovely white, delicate yet vibrant, with an array of lemongrass, lime and stony mineral flavors that finish on a vivid note. 92 points,Wine Spectator
Best in class, 2019 Dance Chardonnay and 2020 Cymbal Sauvignon were awarded Platinum.

Long Shadows gathers some of the wine world’s biggest talents under the umbrella of a single label. In 2003, Allen Shoup began the Long Shadows project, in which iconic winemakers from around the globe focus on their signature grape varieties, as produced with Washington fruit.
When asked about his favorite memories with one of our wines, Jonathan Missen fondly mentioned a trip he took to Aruba. A bottle of Pedestal made its way into his luggage and was delightfully enjoyed on the beach at sunset.
The dream project from Washington state wine pioneer Allen Shoup, Long Shadows is something like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones getting together to jam. In other words, nine world class winemakers from around the world contribute to the various labels under this impressive umbrella to create knockout varietals showcasing Washington state’s Columbia Valley fruit. Gilles Nicault, a native of the Rhone region of France, is the able ringmaster of this incredible effort and has been from the get-go. He’s whip smart and fun to watch on Reels, too.
