Description

"A charming blend of lemon, tropical fruit, honey and butterscotch aromas and flavors. The wine displays admirable balance and a generous finish that is fueled by good acidity."  PinotFile Vol 10, Issue 38

Our estate vineyard, Dunn Forest Vineyard, was a pioneer in Oregon’s first plantings of the Dijon Clone Chardonnay, ideal in our cool climate. We ferment it in mostly neutral oak barrels, producing this Chardonnay with a suppleness of fruit and well-integrated oak, making it a food friendly gem. A vibrant array of citrus notes along with tropical flavors and notes of apple and melon will have you pairing this wine with dishes topped with cream sauces, pesto or a mango salsa.
