Tasting notes: Baked apple, peach, passionfruit shortbread cookie, tarragon all mingle on the nose of this complex wine. The palate is rich and silky with great acid underpinnings, featuring honeyed citrus and stone fruit notes, buttered brioche, and hints of sweet herbs and toasted vanilla. This wine is full-bodied and layered, and delicious already, though 5-8 years in the cellar will bring out even more nuance and interest. Enjoy now-2030
Blend: 100% Chardonnay

Sourced rom 1984 ‘Celilo Vineyard' plantings as well as Connor Lee, Boushey and Kenny Hill vineyards, this was aged for fifteen months in 50% new French oak prior to bottling. Right out of the gate this shows off toasty brioche with pear and marzipan tones all fill the nose. The palate is plush with a soft texture and wonderful brightness. Ripe Japanese pear and lemon zest dusted sourdough bread and a wonderfully long finish. This is incredibly well-balanced stuff that will cellar well over the next decade, picking up nutty and earthy tones as it ages. Drink 2021-2031
