2017 is the last vintage we used non-estate fruit for our Chardonnay. That year, we sourced the grapes from Robinson Vineyard, one of the most northern sites in the Willamette Valley AVA. The vines are over 20 years old and the clone is Dijon 95, a well-proven clone in the production of classic Oregon Chardonnays. This small lot has been fermented and aged 10 months in neutral French oak barrels. True to our nature, the wine is unfiltered (just very meticulously racked) and bottled using the lowest level of sulfur possible. On the nose, the 2017 Chardonnay shows notes of lemon, pear, wet stone and a hint of tangerine skin. In the mouth, the wine is graceful and elegant, with a very polished structure that finally opens to a vibrant finish with a zesty citrusy accent. This wine will pair well with a simple onion tart or seared scallops with a coconut lemongrass sauce.
