    When I sat down to taste this at the winery, I didn't hear the owner and founding winemaker Harry Peterson-Nedry explain that it was a Chardonnay. I gave the glass a swirl, and aromas of lemon peel and mineral and a very light palate led me to believe that it was perhaps a Riesling. When Nedry explained that it was, indeed, an unoaked Chardonnay, and that "Inox" is French for stainless steel, I was totally floored by the purity of the style. You have to taste this wine.

    I had the pleasure of tasting the lineup of new releases from Chehalem on a recent trip to their vineyards in Oregon. Among several that stood out was this Chardonnay. Seeing no malo or oak, it has so much beautiful white peach, green apple and citrus fruits, dazzling acidity and fresh juiciness on the palate that my taste buds were craving a full glass. Don't snub this varietal! Oregon Chardonnay is on the rise and this bottling from Chehalem is a wonderful representation of what the region has to offer.
