WINEMAKER'S NOTES

The elegant and late-ripening Dupee Vineyard, located in the western part of the McMinville AVA, is the source of our very first Chardonnay. Positioned in the Oregon Coast Range, this cool site produces wines of exquisite freshness. The vineyard is planted to a Massal Selection of Chardonnay clones, giving the resultant wine an alluring mix of ripe fruit with the restraint and vibrancy of Chablis. The nose bursts from the glass with pear, white peach, and assorted white flowers. On the palate it offers a deliciously smooth finish lifted by mouthwatering acidity. We are very proud of our inaugural release!
