Willamette Valley, Oregon
Our Willamette Valley Chardonnay is bottled each spring following harvest. This wine is made to showcase the vibrancy and elegance of Chardonnay grown in Oregon’s Willamette Valley.
The 2021 Oregon harvest will be one to remember. It was dry with heat spikes throughout the summer. Fortunately, the grapes were unaffected by the historical “Heat Dome” that descended upon us in June. The fruit was beautiful and balanced, with generous aromatics.
Pale golden yellow in color. A voluminous bouquet with brioche, pear, and light nutmeg spice. The palate feels like a wave; starting with a calm and smooth entry, then quickly transitioning into a brisk and briny midpalate. The finish is crisp with a lingering nuttiness, reminiscent of sweet almonds and honey sweetened nougat. - Rachel Rose, Winemaker. Fall 2022.
