This light, elegant, precisely crafted wine is a blend of both stainless and barrel-aged juice. Note the low alcohol, and yet how much texture and detail the wine displays. Green berry, apple and pear flavors are highlighted with cinnamon and brioche. This is the style of elegant Chardonnay that Oregon does so well.
