Chehalem Chardonnay Willamette Valley Inox 2009

Member Review by anchca:

Green apple, citrus, peach and pear. Also, something floral on the nose (honeysuckle?). Bright with a very nice finish and mouthfeel.

Chehalem:
CHEHALEM Winery is known for Pinot Noir, but also equivalently for white wines. And we’re proud of that, speaking eloquently to the first half of a meal as well as the last half.

CHEHALEM Winery is known for Pinot Noir, but also equivalently for white wines. And we’re proud of that, speaking eloquently to the first half of a meal as well as the last half. Over half of production is white, ranging from Riesling, our passion in several styles, to ground-swelling new Oregon Chardonnay, Pinot Gris which we do exceptionally well, and to exciting smaller productions of Grüner Veltliner and Pinot Blanc— everything grown sustainably on our three estate vineyards: Ridgecrest, Stoller and Corral Creek.  The climate and our winemaking style reveal wines that emphasize balance, elegance and texture rather than power and size. This openness allows the vintage and three terroirs on which we sustainably farm in the Ribbon Ridge, Dundee Hills and Chehalem Mountains to express themselves, not with words but with wines of startling distinction. Mature vineyards, mature winemaking, consistently great wines. Read less

Crisp stone fruit and citrus zest on the nose. Clean and fresh aromas. It's got a bright flavor profile with a hint of nutiness. Smooth, clean and fresh pure fruit flavors. Great summer, poolside chardonnay. Wonderfully juicy. 6/9/12

Lovely white aromas of gardenia and other flowers, peach, apricot, pear, pineapple, and green apple candy showing on the nose and palate; it shows a great balance with relatively low alcohol for the year and bright acid; the length is lovely and the weight rich, with a supple, silky texture; flavors linger, with cherry and peach accents.
