WINE OVERVIEW
Named after Bill Stoller’s aunt, Elsie’s Chardonnay is delicate with aromatics of preserved lemon, flint, wet stone, Bartlett pear and bee pollen. This wine is elegant with vibrant acidity, texture and length. This blend is considered to be the pinnacle of what our Chardonnay cellar had to offer in 2016. We were very myopic when we blended this wine, carefully taking small increments out of best barrels to create a synergistic blend that was designed for longevity. This wine was blended, put back into two neutral puncheons where it sat on its lees for an extra 6 months to facilitate a rich mouthfeel to complement the bright acidity. 

HARVEST OVERVIEW
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.
