Notes from the producer:
"Nestled in the Chehalem Mountains of the Willamette Valley, the beautiful Dion Vineyard Chardonnay is farmed sustainably via the LIVE program. This family owned and operated vineyard dates back to 1976, now maintained by a third-generation wine grower.
For the 2021 Chardonnay, aromas of lemon, flint, jasmine, clove, tangerine, summer wildflowers, and ocean mist all present on the nose, suggesting a wine that is both delicate and powerful. On the palate, there are flavors of chalky, crisp yellow apple, apricot, white peach, starfruit, quince and a hint of sea salty minerality. Underlying notes of nutmeg and toasted bread add depth and complexity to the wine. It combines the best parts of raciness and richness, with lively energy, making it a wine that is enjoyable to drink now but will also develop even more over time."
