Lange Chardonnay 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

By utilizing stainless steel during fermentation, our winemakers achieve a Chardonnay that allows fruit and terroir to define the wine. The 2009 Willamette Valley Chardonnay is ripe with varietal character, showing notes of clover flower, Asian pear, and white peach, with undertones of flinty minerality. Voluptuous flavors of pear tart, apricot preserve, ripe honeydew, almond, and anise round out the palate. Malo-lactic conversion is never encouraged in Lange white wines, which lends to this wine’s sprightly fruit and balanced acid structure. We encourage you to grill up your favorite fish, sautee some seasonal vegetables, and churn a batch of chevre ice cream to pair with this food-friendly, crowd-pleasing, eminently gulpable Chardonnay!

Driven by a passion for Pinot Noir and a love of the land, Don and Wendy Lange founded their winery in the Dundee Hills of Oregon's northern Willamette Valley. The year 1987 marked the Lange’s first vintage and consisted of the three varietals they embrace today: Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Chardonnay. The Langes' mission is to produce consistent, complex, balanced wines that express terroir and dedicated stewardship. Known for his even hand, Winemaker Don Lange crafts beautifully balanced wines from estate fruit, sustainably and organically farmed in the famed red Jory soil of the prestigious Dundee Hills appellation. To further supplement their 15,000 case production, the Langes purchase additional fruit from renowned vineyards in the surrounding area. Long-standing relationships with these talented growers have helped the winery establish a well-deserved reputation for consistency and complexity in the wines. In addition to Pinot Gris and Chardonnay, Don bottles at least six different Pinot Noirs, paying meticulous attention to each lot of wine. While guiding its journey through a careful barrel regime, he blends as he sees fit or bottles his favorites as single-vineyard offerings. Don is joined by his son Jesse in these endeavors; thus the Lange Estate legacy continues with Jesse's expert contributions in both the cellar and the vineyard. Read less
