    This wine is not for butter lovers. This is instead a wine for the adventurous, like Alice's “Drink Me” bottle. It begins with the nutty aroma of a fino sherry, followed by tangy lemon and chalk notes. A soft texture with medium acidity awaits, with flavors like passion fruit, basil and Ligurian olive oil.

    (Featured) More than a few Willamette Valley vintners have found ways to make elegant, detailed and delicious Chardonnays without relying upon super ripe fruit or super toasty barrels. This very fine example was fermented and aged in 500 liter barrels; it was not put through secondary (malolactic) fermentation. It’s a lovely bottle, annotated with pollen, hinting at minerality, solidly structured with refined lemon, orange and apple fruit at the core. Good length, concentration and superb balance throughout make this an exceptional value in a sleek, elegant Chardonnay.
