A little funky and slightly cheese on the nose which carries with it the aromas of old wood and freshly crushed fruit, picking up nuanced smoke, herb stem and lime aromas as it opens. Bright and fantastically vivid on entry, this is all about tart citrus and apple fruit flavors and a very fine base of dried herbs, flowers and soil tones. Nuanced and complex this elegant offering, dances lightly on the palate with admirable purity and refreshing brightness finishing with an earthy cast to the fresh citrus and pineapple flavors. Subtle and pure. 92pts

Winemaker's Notes:

In 1964, before leaving for Oregon, David hand-selected a remarkable collection of vine cuttings from the Draper Ranch in northern California. The clonal diversity of this collection, originally imported from Burgundy, and the cool Burgundian climate of the Willamette Valley combine to produce Eyrie's unique and distinctly European-styled Chardonnay. Aged on the lees for eleven months in neutral oak, and given one loose filtration before bottling, the wines are subtly expressive, elegant, and long-lived.
