2018 Vintage 45 Chardonnay

2018 Vintage 45 Chardonnay

Celebrating Bill Fuller's milestone 45th vintage in Oregon, our 2018 Vintage 45 Chardonnay is crafted by Bill from his favorite blocks at Tualatin Estate Vineyard using his traditional techniques. 

As one of Oregon’s early winemakers, Bill planted Tualatin Vineyards in 1973 and is recognized for many firsts in our industry, including making the first Oregon wine to be named to the Wine Spectator Top 100 List for his 1989 Chardonnay. Continuing to inspire us, Bill is still making wine at age 83! 

Light gold in color, the wine opens with aromas of pear, golden apple, toasted oak and vanilla. Rich and round in texture with flavors of candied pineapple, lemon creme, brown sugar and brioche that fold into a finish offering balancing acidity for freshness.

Food Pairings: Butternut squash and kale quiche, steamed clams in pesto broth, zucchini corn fritters, lobster mac ‘n cheese, brined turkey and soft cheeses.

Peak drinkability: 2020 - 2026.
