Pike Road Chardonnay
Notes from the Winemaker
You'll find delicate tropical notes of pineapple and guava mixed with lemon curd and hints of oak, lemongrass, and a long, seamless finish.
How we make our Chardonnay
Our Willamette Valley Chardonnay is sourced from three local vineyards, hand-picked, and then gently pressed. 15% of the wine is barrel fermented and aged in large French oak barrels for 9 months (35% new). The remaining 85% is fermented in stainless steel tanks. Both portions go through full malo-lactic fermentation to help soften the acidity and provide an elegant texture.
