2016 Willamette Valley Chardonnay
ALC 13.5% Cases Produced: 250
Complex and intense nose of flint, wet stone, salted caramel apple, citrus pie, honeycomb and chestnut. The mouthfeel is vibrant upfront and creamy on the midpalate. It’s juicy, yet refined on a very crisp, toasted brioche finish that shows intensity and mineral characteristics.
Framed by the Coast Range mountains to the west and Cascade Mountains to the east, the Willamette Valley AVA forms a cool-climate growing basin ideally suited for the production of traditional Burgundian varieties. With an array of different soil types and microclimates, the quality and complexity of Willamette Valley wine has garnered a fierce international reputation.
