CHALMERS WHITE BLEND
Sourced from the famed Red Willow Vineyard in the northwestern corner of the Yakima Valley, this Second Generation Release Bordeaux-Style wine shows hues of deep ruby and imperial purple. The aromatics are focused on red fruits of cherry and currant, the lifted aromatics intertwine with prominent barrel spice and sweet molasses. Aged in 40% new French oak puncheons, this blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot embodies the relationship between world-class vineyard care and a subtle hand in the cellar. Luxurious enough to stand alone and drink young alongside a fatty Ribeye or brisket, this wine was crafted for long-term aging and special occasions with friends.
Light straw and transparent in color, this classic Willamette Valley Chardonnay showcases bright aromatics of citrus, mineral, and orange blossom, leading into subtle hints of honeycomb and neutral oak. Picked on the early side, the palate’s focus is more reminiscent of the famed Bourgogne than California, with juicy characteristics of lemon rind and green apple.
The crisp entry was barrel fermented using 100% neutral French Oak, followed by malolactic fermentation and a delicate hand throughout. This barrel fermentation with neutral French Oak rather than new American Oak results in a fresher cleaner Chardonnay. New American Oak imparts Vanilla and other characteristics that are considered New World. Ours is more Old World in nature.
The pronounced acidity on the finish makes this an extraordinary summer sipper to be enjoyed while slurping dozens of oysters on the half shell, heirloom tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and basil, or a simple porch swing.
