2014 Willamette Valley Chardonnay
The 2014 Willamette Valley Chardonnay is a blend of fruit sourced from three different vineyards from three different AVAs, just like our Reserve Chardonnay. But unlike our reserve, this wine was designed to be a more pure representation of the grape and was thus fermented in only neutral French oak barrels to better preserve its bright fruit profile. Unmasked by toasted oak aromatics, this wine displays brilliant citrus fruit. The nose comes alive with green apple and lemon notes and has fun nuances of pear, mandarin orange, pineapple and almond. Texturally, the wine is surprisingly rich with excellent acidity making it a great food wine.
