Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
After a few dry winters, the 2016-2017 winter provided ample rain and snowpack statewide. The winter gave way to a relatively cool and wet spring compared to the last few years. As a result, bud break in Oregon started closer to normal in mid-April. The spring warmed up with record heat in late May that initiated flowering in most areas of the state. July ramped up the heat moving the vintage rapidly to véraison. However, August saw multiple one day records for maximum daytime temperatures with heat stress events early and late in the month. - Oregon Wine Board

Production
The Chardonnay fermented in stainless steel at a low temperature to preserve aromatics. At the end of the fermentation the wine was transferred to barrel for aging and malolactic fermentation to give complexity and to soften the acidity. The cooperage was 100% French oak with 43% New and 57% Neutral. The Chardonnay aged 17 months in barrel.
