User Reviews for Cameron Chardonnay Abbey Ridge

Winemaker's Notes:

On the 2003 vintage, the winemaker had this to say,"This vintage will certainly go down as one of the hottest and driest on record in Oregon. After a very wet March and April saturated the soil, the months of May through August came with barely a hint of rain. Many vines lost their basal leaves by August but with their deep root system they struggled through in decent shape. Still, the wines from the non-irrigated vineyards will express the hot, dry vintage that it was...Higher elevation vineyards, such as Abbey Ridge, were not so adversely affected by the winds and produced wines of moderate alcohols and more balance throughout. Irrigated vineyards ironically experienced the worst examples of fruit dehydration because their leaf canopies were so large that they sucked water out of the fruit during the windy period. But with massive quantities of new oak, the washed-out middle palates will be saved with wood tannins (please note the sarcasm here). White wines from the 2003 vintage are gorgeous with abundant acidity due to the cold nights throughout late September and early October when they were harvested. They will most likely be the best overall wines from the vintage."
