This fresh yet complex Chardonnay offers a palate of pear and apple with vibrant acidity. Leading with mineral notes, the finish offers hints of vanilla and cedar. This aromatic Chardonnay was partially fermented in stainless steel tanks and gained complexity from partial aging in neutral oak barrels, which illuminates the light oak spice and vanilla flavors. This process created a nicely balanced Chardonnay with a bright acidity and smooth finish

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Sourced from our Estate Vineyard and Chateau Bianca - 100% Willamette Valley fruit The 2016 growing season in Oregon mimicked the previous few vintages with one of the earliest bud breaks yet. Spring came quickly with warm days that turned into temperate summer months. Bloom saw a miniature heat wave that tapered the size and set of the fruit. Though the growing season got off to an early start, the more even summer temperatures slowed things and allowed the fruit to develop thoroughly with delectable complexity and intense flavor. The vintage resulted in, once again, extraordinary fruit quality, but with yields closer to pre-2014 vintages.
