2021 Chardonnay, Wolf Hill Vineyard
Concrete Fermented & Aged
Old vines located on the southern end of the Eola-Amity Hills AVA with wide-spaced rows recalls another era of Oregon viticulture. This spacing allows a cooling coastal breeze to flow through the vineyard for a long growing season. Whole-cluster pressed, the juice handled oxidatively, and fermented and aged in small concrete vessels, this Chardonnay has bright natural acidity and minerality.
