Tasting Notes

2017 was a classic Chardonnay vintage in the Willamette Valley. Moderate temperatures and cool harvest conditions allowed for extended ripening and complex flavors. In the glass, there is a brilliant straw yellow color. Immediate aromas of apricot and lemon oil are apparent and there is a pleasant balance of sweet French oak and vanilla notes. The palate is clean and enjoyable with flavors of lemon zest, honeysuckle and fresh bread. Enjoy now and until at least 2025.

Vineyard Notes

King Estate Chardonnay is produced in limited quantities and crafted to our highest winemaking standards. The grapes for this wine came from some of the finest sustainably farmed vineyards throughout the Willamette Valley. Bright, balanced and expressive, this wine demonstrates the beauty of Willamette Valley Chardonnay.

Winemaker Notes

This 2017 vintage was whole cluster pressed and fermented in barrel. It was then aged with its lees in French oak barrels for 5 months with weekly battonage, before bottling.
