Winestyr Review

This is a delectable Chardonnay from Oregon's Willamette Valley AVA. Pure, balanced, and complex, this wine drinks a lot more like a white Burgundy than its domestic brethren from California. Nervy acidity, but with a round and satisfying mouthfeel, this is a wonderful food wine. Pair with anything from green apple wedges and baked Brie to poached salmon or even fresh shellfish. 100% Chardonnay. 175 cases produced.

What We Love

  • Evokes the great white wines of Burgundy
  • Complex and balanced

This Chardonnay from Oregon's Willamette Valley AVA is the perfect Chardonnay for fans of all different varieties of white wine and would make a great house white.
