Winemaker Notes

For the 2016 Chardonnay there was one new French oak barrel and the amphora. The new oak percentage was 27% with the remaining 73% being fermented and aged in the amphora. The cooper for the new barrel was Francois Freres, all this wine competed malolactic fermentation.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 94
Vinous

Pale yellow-gold. Fresh and incisive on the nose, displaying intense citrus and orchard fruit scents complemented by suggestions of toasty lees, iodine and sweet butter. Sappy, penetrating and seamless in texture, offering concentrated pear nectar, peach, tangerine and honeysuckle flavors that deepen slowly on the back half while maintaining energy. Finishes with repeating pear and floral notes, with a late jolt of dusty minerality pulling things together.

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Sequitur Chardonnay has a gregarious nose of spiced, baked yellow apples and warm pineapple with notes of toast, honey, hazelnut and hay. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with warm orchard and tropical fruits accented by nuances of baking spice, nuts and honey, with a touch of creaminess to the texture, juicy acidity and a long, mineral-laced finish. 85 cases produced.

Our journey began with the purchase of a 60 acre Douglas Fir tree farm in December 2010 from an old retired school teacher, Frank Dummer, a meticulous man of principle. After years of convincing Frank that we were worthy stewards of his beloved timber stand, Carey and I began our master plan. We built a small house on a pond in the middle of the woods and on the ridge above our home, on a very small area of the property directly adjacent to Beaux Freres’s Upper Terrace, we planted a 12 acre pinot noir vineyard. Half of the vineyard was planted in the spring of 2012, called the Lavender Block (after the beautiful lavender planted at the row end posts of the block) and the other half in the spring of 2013, the Rosemary Block. What distinguishes this vineyard, other then having 17 diverse clones of pinot noir planted very densely, is the forest of Douglas Fir enclosing three sides of the vineyard, which gives this gentle south slope protection from winds and preserves its unique terrior. The virgin marine sediment soils in the vineyard have only been farmed with organic and biodynamic principles in order to preserve the native ground cover. Carey's honey bees are thriving in the vineyard, we think for good reason.

Ribbon Ridge is a regular span of uplifted, marine, sedimentary soils (called Willakenzie), whose highest ridge elevations twist like a ribbon. An early settler from Missouri named Colby Carter noticed this unique topography and gave the region its name in 1865—though but it wasn’t declared its own AVA until 140 years later, in 2005. The AVA is enclosed by mountains on all sides between Yamhill-Carlton and the Chehalem Mountains, and is actually part of the larger Chehalem Mountains AVA. Its soils have a finer texture than its neighbors with parent materials composed of sandstone, siltstone, and mudstone. Given its presence of natural aquifers in this five square mile area, most vineyards are actually easily dry farmed!

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.
