Year’s Best Oregon Chardonnays

"This opens to pear and pineapple flavors, as if spritzed with lemon and lime. It’s mouthwatering, a crowd-pleaser for a picnic."
—P.J.C.

Description: The summer of 2018 was exceedingly dry and sunny. Fortunate weather brought light showers followed by cool, dry weather just before harvest. This ideal combination bodes well for a long lived vintage. Citrus and white peach define the aromas, with crisp minerality on the finish. New oak was limited to sixteen percent. The final blend was 27% Dijon 95, 73% Dijon 76. The Dijon 76 provides it’s usual citrus notes and crisp minerality on the nose and finish. The Dijon 95 contributes some complexity and weight to the mid-palate, with more stone fruit aspect and mouthfeel.

Additional vintages available: 2017
