This Chardonnay starts off with unforgettable aromas of apricot, lemongrass and buttered popcorn that set the stage for beautifully melded flavors of honeydew melon, pear and lemon shortbread.
While Chardonnay can grow in many different climates, it thrives in cool, temperate regions like Oregon. The unique climate, diversity of soil types and the gentle sunlights influence on both canopy and fruit form the foundation of this wines character. In the cellar, we focus on whole-cluster light pressing of the grapes and allowing them to cold settle. The wine is then barrel fermented in French oak (50% new) for 14 months undergoing full malolactic fermentation.
