Yamhill Valley Vineyards Chardonnay 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

Grapes were hand-picked from our estate vineyard and delivered to the crush pad where they were meticulously hand sorted, and pressed whole cluster to minimize any bitterness that may have been extracted from the skins during de-stemming. Juice was settled overnight, and then racked and inoculated. Slow, cool fermentation encourages a full bouquet to accompany rich and complex flavors.

Yamhill Valley Vineyards is located on a 150 acre estate in the rolling foothills of Oregon's Coast Range Mountains, one hour southwest of Portland in the Willamette Valley. The heart of our wine making is dedicated to Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc. We believe that the distinctive, rich character of our wines is created in the vineyard and reaches full potential through the timely application of attentive wine making practices. While keenly aware of traditional methods, we are committed to exploring new technologies and innovative techniques. Since our first vintage in 1983 our wines have consistently won top honors in tastings and judgings across the nation. Our 1983 Pinot Noir was the first place preference in the famous Wine Center in New York City. From our beginning we have been stubbornly dedicated to the pursuit of a character that is distinctively Oregon and distinctively Yamhill Valley. Our goal is to bring forth from this unusual and exciting property the finest possible expression of its intensity, charm and uniqueness. We are family owned and operated, and every wine that we produce is estate grown and bottled.  Read less

Tasting Notes:

Our Chardonnay is a field blend of two Dijon clones; 76 and 95, which are ideal matches for the Oregon climate, showing a wide variety of characteristics depending on the growing season. This warmer year lends to tropical notes, such as the pineapple aromatics you'll find, as well as ripe flavors of pecan, which are contrasted with bright and lively prickly pear characteristics, adding a dynamic note to the long finish. Enjoy with white fish and cream sauces to enhance your tasting.
