2017 Oak Ridge Chardonnay
A brilliant pale straw color leads into focused notes of lemon chiffon and wet stone. This wine exhibits pure alpine qualities of freshness, palate cleansing acidity, varietal aromas and a saline minerality that begs for another sip.
Proudly featuring Columbia Gorge fruit from Chardonnay vines planted in 1984 and 2010. The Oak Ridge Vineyard is certified organic, dry farmed, and perched in the foothills of Mount Adams. Harvested September 8 & 22.
Gently whole cluster pressed and briefly settled before racked into barrel where it underwent a long cool fermentation. Matured on fine lees for 13 months in neutral oak then transferred to stainless steel for 3 months before bottling. 200 cases produced.
