WINE OVERVIEW
Our Single Clone Chardonnay series is specially crafted for guests who visit our tasting room. The wine was aged in 100% neutral oak for 12 months to showcase the clonal nuances of the varietal.

We chose to feature clone 548 because it’s the opposite of our other Single Clone Chardonnay, Clone 76. With tropical aromatics and exotic floral notes like kefir lime leaf, this wine is bright, tart and juicy. Clone 548 is grown in two sections of our vineyard. Section 42.3 was planted in 1995, while section 44.3 was planted in 2007.

HARVEST OVERVIEW
The 2017 vintage is classically Oregon. Despite a cold winter and cooler than normal spring, ideal weather after flowering created a healthy fruit set, with as much as 20% more berries per cluster than average. Summer was dry and hot, but vines saw little drought stress. By September, everything was on track for a traditional, “normal” Oregon harvest in the Willamette Valley. Harvest produced a bumper crop with intense flavor, and perfect sugar and acid levels.
