Chehalem Chardonnay Willamette Valley Inox 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"Bright, clean, flinty-briney, with mineral, lime an d tropical fruit aromatics, this wine is all about freshness, bracing and balanced acidity and flavors that are linear, including ginger, white pepper, stone fruit, apple pie and slate. The palate weigh t is impressive for an unoaked chardonnay, the fini sh prolonged, and the purity leaving the sense it will age impeccably. May be the best INOX we’ve made. " -Winery

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
