2014 Willamette Valley Reserve Chardonnay

2014 Willamette Valley Reserve Chardonnay


Overview / Vineyard Notes : Elegant in style and approach, the 2014 Reserve Chardonnay offers a seamless balance elevated by multiple pick dates and the blending of 2 unique vineyard sites. Robinson Vineyard brings an effortless fruit-forward- ness to the resulting wines, defined by rounder, broader textures, upfront approachability and subtly more tropical aromas and flavors. Bunker Hill Vineyard lends sophisticated restraint, a Chablis-like tension in the stony citrus fruit and a complex mineral palate. Together the result is a wine that is expansive and rich on the attack, but tightens up some on the energetic finish. The Reserve Chardonnay is delicious right now, but poised with the ample structure and acidity to age beautifully. 

Production Notes : Hand harvested grapes are crushed and pressed to tank. The juice is cold settled overnight and then racked to barrel where it is inoculated. Primary fermentation takes 3-5 weeks and then secondary fermenta- tion continues for another 2-3 months. Batonnage is carried out monthly and the wine is on lees for 10 months. It is then racked to tank where it awaits bottling in the winter.
