Our Willamette Valley Chardonnay is hand-picked and hand-sorted then gently pressed. The wine is barrel fermented and aged in French oak for 12 months (35% new). The wine has a fresh, light oak profile and a round structure and fruit finish.

The 2016 Vintage

2016 will go down as a fantastic grape growing year for Oregon's Willamette Valley. The growing season started 4 weeks earlier than last years early budbreak. Temperatures were up and down all season, with a short heat spell early on and a significant cool period in August. This provided a lengthened growing season, resulting in small berries with highly concentrated flavors. With the extra time comes more a more focused and relaxed atmosphere in the winery. Add to that the total lack of bird and disease damage and you have some very happy winemakers.
