2016 Dundee Hills Chardonnay 750 ML
Our unoaked Dundee Hills Chardonnay is light and delicate on the nose, opening with hints of pear and elderflower. The vibrant and crisp palate unfolds through notes of Meyer lemon and ripe tropical fruit, finishing with persistent acidity that carries each sip to a lengthy finish.
2016 was a warmer than average year for the Willamette Valley, with a perfect deceleration of heat accumulation at the end of an early growing season that allowed a nice pace to harvest. A touch of rain during flowering gave the composition of small clusters with a higher skin to pulp ratio, leading to concentrated flavors and aromas, making 2016 one of the best vintages to date.
