Winemaker Notes

Expansive richness marries linear precision, forming this beautiful partnership. Meyer lemon custard, ginger, a mouthwatering salinity, finishing with hazelnut and granny smith apple through the long, vibrant finish. This has taken a few months to settle into itself and now that it has, it is simply stellar.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Dundee Hills Chardonnay was bottled in December 2015 after 15 months in wood. It has a taut minerally bouquet with white chocolate and praline scents infusing the citrus fruit, a second bottle showing more lime flower aromas. The palate is chalky on the entry with crisp acidity, fine tension here with a dab of white chocolate towards the refined, slightly saline finish that lingers. This has good potential, but it deserves another year in bottle.

Arterberry Maresh Winery Image
Third generation Dundee Hills grape grower Jim Maresh launched his own brand in 2007. Jim’s grandparents, Jim and Loie, first planted Maresh Vineyard in 1970 when Eyrie was the only other vineyard in the Dundee Hills. Jim senior still works the vine rows on his tractor at 84 years of age. Jim senior’s daughter, Martha Maresh, married Fred Arterberry, one of the first post-prohibition winemakers in Oregon who sadly passed away too young in 1990. Jim junior is their son. The Arterberry Maresh label recalls the font and label design Arterberry Winery used in the 1980s. Those who have driven up Worden Hill Road in Dundee will remember seeing the Maresh Red Barn on the left. The iconic vineyard surrounding it with 40-year old vines has always been farmed organic. If Oregon vineyards were classified like Burgundy Maresh would certainly be a Grand Cru. The philosophy at Arterberry Maresh adheres to old vine Dundee Hills fruit, alcohols under 14% (preferably mid 12 to lower 13%), new oak kept under 15% on Pinot, no pumping, no fining, no filtering, no acidulating, no watering. The goal is purity of fruit and naturality expressing terroir with elegance and ageworthiness.

Home of the first Pinot noir vineyard of the Willamette Valley, planted by David Lett of Eyrie Vineyard in 1966, today the Dundee Hills AVA remains the most densely planted AVA in the valley (and state). To its north sits the Chehalem Valley and to its south, runs the Willamette River. Within the region’s 12,500 acres, about 1,700 are planted to vine on predominantly basalt-based, volcanic, Jory soil.

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.
