Tasting notes

Pale gold in color, this Chardonnay offers aromas of honeysuckle, butterscotch, and baked pear. The palate is clean and crisp with baking spice, fresh pear, honeydew and crème brulee. The winemaker recommends decanting to release the wine’s full potential, though after 2016 the wine will have matured structurally and not require decanting.

Growing Season: The 2014 growing season at our Chalice Vineyard in the foothills of the Oregon Coastal Range started out early with near ideal conditions through bloom.  Heading in to summer we began to experience warmer than normal days in the Eugene area with 36 summer days having daytime highs greater than 90°F.  Harvest began a little early and we picked the Chalice Estate Chardonnay on October 10th and 13th.  Weather remained mostly dry through harvest.  The grapes came to the winery in perfect condition with beautiful apple, melon and pear flavors and aromas.
