Region: Willamette Valley, Oregon

Grapes: Chardonnay 

2021 Chardonnay was sourced from two organically farmed vineyards - the 46-year-old, dry-farmed, own-rooted vines at No Clos Radio and Marin Vineyard (a newly planted site managed by the esteemed Javier Marin and his sons). The fruit from
No Clos was bright and lean while Marin gave plushness and fresh stone fruit aromas. Everything was pressed, settled and barrel fermented spontaneously in a mix of Oregon and French oak and allowed to complete malolactic conversion (also
spontaneously) The wine was racked once to tank and bottled without fining or filtration.
