2019 Bieze Chardonnay
Highly focused winemaking efforts are showcased in this Bieze Vineyard Chardonnay, resulting in a concentrated and rich expression of the vineyard itself. Located in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA, this site is a favorite with its Jory soils and temperate microclimate, which allow for later harvest and fully developed flavors and acids. Gentle winemaking and aging in both concrete eggs as well as French oak barrels highlight the fruit in a freshly distinctive and balanced wine. Layered with aromas of apple, pear and marzipan, followed by citrus and light honey give way to a broad mid palate and a mouthwatering finish.
