Chardonnay - Willamette Valley, Oregon, 2020
Winemaker Drew Voit brings us this Chardonnay from a single cool climate vineyard in the Chehalem Mountains AVA of Oregon's Willamette Valley. From two French clones, Dijon 76 and 95, grown in marine sedimentary soils. The grapes are harvested and brought straight to press whole cluster and racked to barrel. Low intervention with no lees stirring.
Green tinged gold color. Aromatics of nectarine, ginger, Bosc pear, lemon, white flowers, and vanilla. Touches of mineral and golden apple in the mouth. Finishes zesty and crisp. The limited oak adds to the texture, more white Burgundy in style. Only 86 cases produced. Best from 2023–2027.
