Made by Elk Cove Vineyards, this Willamette Valley (Oregon) Chardonnay is sourced from three local vineyards, hand-picked, and then gently pressed. 15% of the wine is barrel fermented and aged in large French oak barrels for 9 months (35% new). The remaining 85% is fermented in stainless steel tanks. Both portions go through full malo-lactic fermentation to help soften the acidity and provide an elegant texture.
You'll find delicate tropical notes of pineapple and guava mixed with lemon curd and hints of oak, lemongrass, and a long, seamless finish.
