Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Pale straw color with shimmering golden hues and a slight green reflection. A classically low oak styled Chardonnay driven by zesty golden apple, pear, and ripe citrus with fresh white flowers and bright herb notes. The wine features secondary flavors of tart pineapple, white peach, and quince. Toast and roasted nut aromas develop from the lees' influence and fold nicely into the soft oak tones from mature barrel influence. The oak profile is quite reserved and serves to provide supple structure and richness on the palate. As the wine develops in the mouth additional flavors of potting soil, mushroom and herbs unfold with light hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, and coriander. The finish is long with layers of fresh fruits, mineral, and bright citrus flavors. The style is very reminiscent of traditional Burgundy Mâconnais Chardonnay, showcasing a delicate combination of apple, pear, and citrus fruits with judicious oak use.
Vineyard Notes
We use a mixture of south-facing, east and west oriented vineyards throughout the valley as building blocks to create the best picture of Willamette Valley Chardonnay that we can.
Production Notes
Coolest vintage since 2011. Slow ripening days with acid building nights made for classic cool-climate Willamette Valley Chardonnay. Late rains spread out the harvest and our picking decisions became key to building this elegant, approachable wine.
Winemaker Notes
Stainless tank fermentation resulting in crisp notes, balanced with oak aging for structure. Partial malolactic fermentation contributes as a subtle bridge between the two
