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.

Clone 76 presents itself differently on our site than others in the Willamette Valley. Our single clone bottling is citrus driven with white floral notes and a hint of coconut and chalk. This clone of Chardonnay is the primary clone in our Elsie’s Chardonnay. It was planted in 1995.

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.
