A To Z Wineworks Chardonnay Oregon 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

89 points Josh Raynolds (IWC): Green-tinged gold. Impressively complex bouquet evokes pear, Meyer lemon, iodine, smoked meat and toasty lees; this has the nose of a much more expensive wine. Fleshy pear and floral honey flavors are deep and a touch warm, picking up refreshing lime and dusty minerals on the finish. An outstanding value. (Apr 2008)

A to Z Wineworks was started in 2002 by four friends, Oregon wine industry veterans, Deb Hatcher (Eyrie), Bill Hatcher (Domaine Drouhin Oregon), Sam Tannahill (Archery Summit) and Cheryl. Francis (Chehalem). The two couples worked in the Hatcher's kitchen to build the original blend honored by Food & Wine Magazine as the Best American Pinot Noir under $20. Recognition for their A to Z wines with dependable quality and great value continued and production grew. In 2006, the group welcomed another Oregon wine veteran, Michael Davies, as winemaker, and partnered with Gregg Popovich (Coach of the San Antonio Spurs) to buy REX HILL Vineyards and Winery (established in 1982). A to Z has worked with more than 100 vineyards across the state always offering assistance for sustainability certification that the group expects to be achieved within three years of partnering. Today, A to Z has two viticulturists on staff and uses biodynamic principles to farm all owned or long-leased vineyards. Diverse sourcing across the state mitigates regional weather difficulties and adds complexity and depth to the one wine of each variety that is blended in any vintage. Additionally, A to Z has more collective Oregon winemaking experience than any other winery, experience that can make a difference in difficult vintages. A to Z remains true to the dual mission of offer Aristocratic Wines at Democratic Prices blending one cuvee each vintage of Pinot Noir, Chardonny and Pinot Gris that deliver the Essence of Oregon. A commitment to excellence is matched by a belief in fair value and sustainability in business as well as farming and a drive to offer the highest quality for the best value. A to Z Oregon Pinot Noir has twice been named to Wine Spectator's Top 100 wines of the yar; A to Z Oregon Pinot Gris is a perennial Best Buy; and A to Z Oregon Chardonnay is America's Best Selling Oregon Chardonnay. A to Z is also a certified B Corporation. Read less

It's quite the success story: This Chardonnay came about through a partnership of the two families that founded A to Z in 2001 - and A to Z is now the fastest-growing winery in the Willamette Valley. Fermented and aged mainly in stainless steel, this white wine has a bright, crisp character.

This Oregon Chardonnay is produced by the partnership of two winemaking families that founded A to Z in 2001. A to Z is now the fastest-growing winery in the Willamette Valley. The wine was fermented and aged mainly in stainless steel, giving this Chardonnay a bright, crisp character.
