Winemaker's Notes:

The 2011 A to Z Chardonnay is a classic example of cool-climate, un-oaked Oregon Chardonnay showing fantastic brightness and abundant fruit. Initial aromas of wet stone, lime, kiwi, tangerine, apple and subtle floral notes open to richer aromas of honey, brioche, apricots and lemon candies. The attack is bright with mouthwatering acidity and pure flavors of lime, quince and wet stones. The mid-palate is focused and intense with great balance between the acid and richness, moving to a finish that is long, clean, crisp, and juicy.

About A to Z:

Founded in 2002, A to Z Wineworks is Oregon's fastest growing winery. The business model is simple: to produce and market Oregon's best wine values by concentrating on their core competencies of acquisition, blending and marketing.

A to Z has a bargain with other wineries from whom they source wines that they will not reveal their identities; component wines could be from any winery in Oregon from A to Z. This winery wanted a name that suggested that their wines are blended from many sources. A to Z builds their blends to craft balanced wines that aim to embody the essence of Oregon rather than reflect a specific single vineyard or A to Z style.
