Winemaker Notes

This 2016 Chardonnay opens with vivid aromas of lemon curd, Asian pear, white flowers, Bergamot orange zest, and cardamom. The flavors of lemon curd and Asian pear carry into the mouth, accompanied by a wet stone minerality. The firm structure and rich textural components linger on the palate.

Professional Ratings

  • 92
    Toasty and lifted, this has a sleek Chablis-like angularity, with lemon-drop and hazelnut scents and flavors that feel at once generous and restrained.
  • 92
    Luscious is the best word for this gorgeous wine. It's loaded with tart and tangy tree fruits. Silky in the mouth, it brings in highlights of lemon curd and sage, and exits with a kiss of toast.
    Editors' Choice
  • 91
    A spirited white, still youthful, with vibrant citrus, mineral and spice details that take on richness along the finish.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.

Chehalem Mountains Wine

Willamette Valley, Oregon

View all products

The Chehalem Mountains is a northwest-southeast span of several distinct mountains, ridges and peaks in the northern part of the Willamette Valley. Of all of Willamette Valley's smaller AVAs, it is closest to the city of Portland. Its highest summit, Bald Peak at an elevation of 1,633 feet, serves to generate cooler air for the rest of the AVA and its hillside vineyards. The region covers 70,000 acres but only 1,600 acres are planted to vines; soils of the Chehalem Mountains are a mix of basalt, ocean sediment and loess.
