Wine Review: This wine came in second place in our recent blind tasting of Oregon Chardonnays. This light yellow wine opens with a very ripe pear like bouquet with a touch of cantaloupe. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is round, a bit zippy, with light lime and pear like flavors and a touch of lightly toasted oak and minerals. The finish is dry and lingers a bit. The panel felt this wine would pair nicely with grilled lemon chicken, chicken picatta, or orange ruffie. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Pineapple rind, dried apricots and desiccated coconut on the nose. The bright acidity and full-body complements the flavors of preserved lemons, white spices and a little woodsmoke. This wine is redolent of autumn.
