91 Points - Paul Gregutt
Our 2021 Chardonnay has been awarded a 91-point score by Paul Gregutt.
"Pike Road has jumped into a much-needed category for Willamette Valley wineries – varietal wines from top tier fruit priced under $20. Make no mistake – I love Oregon Chardonnays, though often the finest examples are priced well beyond the pocketbooks of most wine drinkers. This is done in a lighter style, given just the merest hint of new oak, but spends enough time in mostly neutral wood to avoid the overly bright harshness that can sometimes come with all-stainless fermentation. Lovely flavors of cucumber, green melon and banana, coupled with a finishing touch of butter, pull this into focus through a lingering finish. The screwcap ensures freshness and no musty notes." - Paul Gregutt
