The Estate Chardonnay is made with a focus on creating a complex, savory, and austere expression of Chardonnay. The barrels for this blend are chosen based on their depth, persistence, and natural acidity.
The 2019 vintage was cool the entire season, and the wines are distinctly light, bright, and classically “Oregon” in style.
Brilliant pale straw in color. The nose is austere with restrained notes of pear, lemon, nougat, and brioche. The palate is tight and crisp, with a lovely ginger snap sweetness and midpalate silkiness. The finish is taut and snappy. - Rachel Rose, Winemaker. Spring 2021.
