Our 2018 Dundee Hills Chardonnay walks the entirety of the citrus spectrum, offering aromas of lime, lemon curd, and orange blossom, as well as gardenia and a gust of briny coastal air. On the palate, the wine is linear and focused, with mineral undertones neatly wrapped around pronounced acidity and candied lemon flavors.
The wine demonstrates the overflowing potential of Archery Summit Chardonnay. Pinot Noir’s noble Burgundian counterpart, this variety thrives in the rich resident volcanic soil of the Dundee Hills. With three separate Chardonnay plantings, we strive to capture the collective voice of these distinctive Dundee Hills parcels. Armed with the understanding of terroir and nuance that comes with decades of growing Pinot Noir, we are thrilled to deliver Chardonnay of the same stature as our Pinot Noirs.
