Wine Review: 2011 Willamette Valley Vineyards Chardonnay Estate

The Willamette Valley Vineyards Chardonnay is a labor of love. It takes nearly a year to complete its process from whole cluster pressing to a slow cold soak and a once a month lees stirring. This wine is very bright and lively with a unique flavor profile that really carries its mineral, lemon and pear notes from start to finish. Pair this with delicate seafood dishes. Drink through 2016. 

Rating: Very Good (88) | $30 | 13.1% ABV
