Evil Pure Evil Chardonnay 2007

Member Review by agrigg:

This wine had a nice blend of oaky and fruity flavors. It had a more even and defined flavor after being chilled about 30 minutes.

A to Z Wineworks' partnership blends unique skills. Bill Hatcher brought an extensive background in strategy and finance to the Oregon wine industry and Domaine Drouhin Oregon, which he managed for 13 years before co-founding A to Z. Debra Hatcher spearheads marketing, promotion and design while serving as the liaison with Northwest Core Collection, our national sales force. Sam Tannahill and Cheryl Francis, winemakers respectively for Archery Summit and Chehalem for 8 years, bring surpassing creativity and technical expertise resulting in the same quality at 120,000 cases as with the inaugural 2,500 that earned us Food and & Wine Magazine's award for the best American Pinot Noir under $20. In 2006, a widely experienced Michael Davies joined the winemaking team and Gregg Popovich, coach of the San Antonio Spurs, became a partner representing his Rock & Hammer Pinot Noir. Charlotte Mischel runs the day-to-day operations with her organizational and problem solving skills. In 2007, A to Z and more minority partners purchased Rex Hill Vineyards, a 25 year old winery at the northern tip of the Willamette Valley, and our staff expanded and we hired Amy Prosenjak Amy Prosenjak as CFO. Founded in 2002, the company is Oregon's fastest growing winery. The business model is simple: to produce and market Oregon's best wine values by concentrating on our core competencies of acquisition, blending and marketing. Read less

The 2008 Pure Evil Chardonnay received partial barrel fermentation. It offers up a nose of toast, baking spices, baked apple, and tropical aromas. On the palate a hint of butterscotch emerges to complement the wine's lively acidity. Drink this medium-length Chardonnay over the next 2 years. It is a very good value.

Light yellow. Smoky, lees-accented apple and pear aromas offer good depth and focus. Fleshy orchard and pit fruit flavors are firmed by juicy acidity and carry through a sweet, chewy, lightly earthy finish. Plenty of flavor for the money here.

The 2005 Pure Evil Chardonnay spent some time in French oak. It is light gold-colored with an attractive perfume of butterscotch, spice box, baked apple, and poached pear, more like the nose of a wine three times the price. Medium-bodied, it delivers intense, ripe, spicy flavors buttressed by good acidity and a long finish. This is an awesome value in Chardonnay.

This wine is anything but evil. What could be nicer than top-rate Chardonnay fruit from some of South Australiarsquo;s best regions made into a voluptuous wine by Chris Ringland mdash; and at a steal of a price? It has white peach stone fruit character, a luscious textural mouthfeel and a touch of French oak influence. Its creaminess is balanced by an elegant freshness.
