The steep south-facing hillside in DuBrul Vineyard yields grapes with unique flavors and structure. Our Chardonnay block straddles the rocky, Southfacing hillside and alluvial soils on the western edge. Less vigorous soils lie on top of basalt and ancient Columbia River deposits of granitic rock.
100% French; 22% new, 78% 3 years.
Pure and racy, our barrelfermented Chardonnay displays vibrant aromas of ripe pear, apple blossoms, honeysuckle and crème brûlée. Full-bodied and creamy, yet with a crisp assertive impression on the palate and a long stony finish.
