2021 Chardonnay, Willamette Valley
An assemblage of vineyard sites from various locations in the northern Willamette Valley. We work with these vineyards to craft a wine that shows balance and the best of Chardonnay from this cool climate region. Combining earlier and later ripening locations creates a wine with layers of aromatics and flavors that accentuate classic Oregon acidity and texture.
TASTING NOTES AS OF APRIL, 2023
Floral aromas accompany aromas of lemon custard, grapefruit, graham cracker lead into flavors of citrus, tart pear, shortbread, and lime rind with bright acidity.
