Rex Hill Chardonnay Willamette Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"To highlight the wonderful fruit and underlying minerality in some ofthe Willamette Valleys best vineyard sites, we ferment in smallstainless steel to retain the fruits bright transparency and then agethe wines on their lees to achieve a creamy mouthfeel. Aromas ofcandied citrus, plums, green apple. Good richness on the attack, withbroad palate-coating flavors that echo the nose. The brisk acidity addsstructure and freshness, focusing the mineral notes, and lengtheningflavors." Winery Notes

Wine Tasting NotesAromas of candied citrus, plums, green apple. Good richness on the attack, with broad palatecoating flavors that echo the nose. The brisk acidity adds structure and freshness, focusing the mineral notes, and lengthening flavors. The 2006 unwooded represents the sixth vintage of Oregon's original ultra-premium un-oaked Chardonnay. We aim to show the fruit forward nature and underlying minerality of some of Oregon's best vineyard sites in this wine.
