Chardonnay from Willamette Valley, Oregon

Item No. 45851

Winemaker's Notes

Our Chardonnay is 100% barrel fermented using six different yeasts in 25% new wood. We pursue a very extended fermentation for Chardonnay, six months on average, striving for richness of fruit in the wine. Extended lees contact and judicious lees-stirring round out intense varietal flavors to produce an opulent wine of complexity and depth. Redolent of fresh pears and baked apple pie, the wine unfolds on the palate to showcase full Chardonnay fruit with a texture that coats the mouth without being heavy. With sufficient acidity to balance the concentration of fruit in the wine, it finishes long and clean.

Alcohol: 13.6% by volume
