Green-tinged straw. Bright and incisive on the nose displaying fresh mineral-tinged pear and nectarine aromas that show excellent clarity. Silky penetrating and precise offering an array of sharply focused citrus and pit fruit flavors supported by a spine of smoky minerality. A subtle floral note appears on the fragrant very persistent finish which leaves behind a juicy Meyer lemon note. Owner/winemaker Harry Peterson-Nedry, who founded this winery, along with co-owner Bill Stoller (Stoller Vineyards) in 1990, has been a long-time and vocal proponent of the potential for white wines in the Willamette Valley. When I visited him last August he expressed a quiet pride in the fact that so many of his colleagues are proving his prediction to be correct and confidence that the best is still to come. Now joined at Chehalem by his daughter, Wynne, Peterson-Nedry crafts elegant, balanced wines that evoke Old World freshness rather than New World bombast. These are often among the State’s best Germanic-based wines, with solid track records for age-worthiness, and the Chardonnays have proven to be worthy cellar candidates. (JR)
Done entirely in stainless tanks, this fruity wine offers spring fresh flavors of citrus, pineapple and green melon. With barely perceptible residual sugar, the acids keep it lip-smacking and lively. There is just a hint of buttery caramel at the core.
