Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Complex, dense, yellow, floral and fruit aromas on the nose are accented by stony minerality across the mid-palate. Flavors of peach, dried apple, nutmeg flavors are rich and bright with a touch of orange marmalade. Texturally very broad across the palate, the viscosity lingers long into the finish.
Vineyard Notes
Freedom Hill is located in the foothills of the coast range 10 miles southwest of Salem, Oregon. The Chardonnay blocks have a southeast exposure at an elevation of 425’ and benefit from heat rising off the valley floor. Hills to the east protect the vines from strong coastal winds. The vines were planted in 1999 and 2006 with Dijon clones 76 and 548 on well-drained silty clay loam.
Production Notes
The grapes were whole cluster pressed. After settling, the juice was barrel fermented with indigenous yeasts. The wine completed malolactic fermentation naturally and was aged sur lees for 11 months entirely in used French oak barrels.
Food Pairing Notes
Rich white meat and vegetarian dishes with complex sauces and rich flavors
