The 2017 growing season’s cool, elongated final stretch was music to Chardonnay’s ears. The resulting wine is richly textured, with subtle oaky and creamy notes atop pure and persistent underlying fruit flavors. Jasmine, flint, pistachio, and curry leaf aromatics dissolve into bright citrus flavors followed by stone fruit, kaffir lime, and lemon curd. A pronounced acidity runs the entire length of this enduring Chardonnay.

Vineyards
Our Chardonnay is inspired by the patience and sageness that come from 25 vintages of winemaking. The wine is a reverent nod to the potential for Willamette Valley Chardonnay, and we are elated to help take the variety to the promised land. The fruit comes from Von Oehsen Vineyard, set beside Evening Land’s historic Seven Springs Vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills. Here, the fruit is beautifully tempered with impressionable acidity by winds that howl through the Van Duzer Corridor.
Winemaking
To best allow each growing site to be selected at peak ripeness, harvest was split into several different days based on each sites development. After handpicking and hand-sorting, all fruit is carefully put through a long and gentle pressing. Once pressed, juice was put directly to barrel to begin fermentation where it remains until barrels are racked and blended in tank for bottling.
