Founder Jim Bernau traveled with the Oregon Governor's Delegation to Burgundy in the 1980s to seek out French clones to improve our state's Chardonnay quality. These vines were brought back and quarantined at Oregon State University before being propagated for use in Oregon vineyards. Naturally derived Dijon Clones from France being planted in the Willamette Valley was one of the greatest tipping points in Oregon wine quality.
On the Nose: This wine opens with a nose of candied pineapple, golden apple, lemon and honey.
On the Palate: a creamy medium-bodied palate offering flavors of pear, orange blossom and dried herbs. Balancing acidity leaves the wine crisp and refreshing, ideal for food pairing.
Food Pairings: Pair with rich seafood dishes like clam linguini, crab ravioli or seafood scampi, chicken piccata or cordon bleu, creamy risotto, fresh salads with vinaigrettes, garlic and lemon hummus and aged white cheddar.
