From the article, in the words of Edward Deitch, "it’s well established that Oregon’s Willamette Valley is one of the world’s preeminent regions for Pinot Noir ... but the region’s Chardonnays, which have also been part of the landscape almost since the Willamette Valley first appeared on the wine map in the mid-1960s, deserve more attention."
Thank you Edward – we whole-heartedly agree!
Our 2019 Chardonnay is crisp, mineral-driven, with just a touch of oak – all in perfect balance – produced entirely from estate fruit grown in rocky volcanic basalt. After 14 months of aging primarily neutral French oak barrels, it spent 5 additional months in stainless steel on lees, offering lovely aromatics, length, and acidity.

Le Cadeau Vineyard 2019 Chardonnay ($45) - "This gorgeous wine is muted and complex, with a perfect balance of fruit, acidity, and oak. Zesty citrus, herb, and floral notes accent green apple and apricot tastes. Hints of powdered cinnamon, vanilla, and butterscotch complete the profile of this exceedingly smooth wine. With bright acidity, it’s an excellent food wine — herb roasted chicken and grilled salmon are just a couple of the possibilities. It’s a wine that doesn’t scream out but leaves a lasting impression."
