Product Overview

Winery's Notes:
"Nestled in the eastern foothills of Oregon’s Coastal Range, on the wild western edge of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA, the range’s peaks to the west and south buffer maritime winds and rain from the Pacific Ocean, creating a more temperate growing season distinct from neighboring vineyard sites. Planted in 2005-2006 to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay Dijon clones, the 194-acre vineyard perches in thin marine sedimentary soils, and diversity of block exposures and elevation offer a diverse palette for our farming and winemaking team.

Sourced from our estate vineyard in the Yamhill-Carlton sub-AVA, our 2020 Yamhill-Carlton Chardonnay opens with beautiful yellow and auburn fruits, lots of baking spice, and structure that holds well beyond the finish.

Aromas: Spring rain, daffodil, graham cracker, apple and peach crumble
Flavors: Stone fruit, marzipan, apricot, and crème fresh
Texture: Beautifully balanced with silkiness and structure"

93 Points - Wine Spectator
"A steely version, with pinpoint and refreshing acidity accenting the fresh lemon and kiwi flavors, this white is laced with tones of stony minerals and spiced lees. Drink now. 954 cases made." -TF, 4/11/24
