Clay Pigeon 2016 “Jura” Chardonnay (Columbia Valley (OR))

Editors' Choice

Following a native fermentation in stainless steel, the wine was allowed to slowly evaporate in neutral barrels that remained unopened for four years. No sulfur was added, and the wine was bottled without added sulfur or filtration. The resulting is like a quality fino Sherry with aromas and flavors of saline, green olives, almond cookies, leathery tannins and a spice note similar to turmeric. The “Jura” is a worthy homage and a brilliant aperitif. Michael Alberty
