2016 Brittan Vineyards Chardonnay - "Organic" Willamette Valley, Oregon
The 2015 Chardonnay dances with notes of pear blossom and honeysuckle, spun sugar and biscuits with clover honey. The entry on the palate is lush and full, with blood orange and vibrant kumquat, while the finish linger with hints of exotic Ceylon tea.
A little history - Robert Brittan left Stags’ Leap Winery in Napa after 16 years as Winemaker and Estate Manager to fulfill his dream of making Pinot Noir and Syrah from unique sites in cooler climates. Robert and his wife, Helen, moved up to Oregon in 2002 and started the winery soon after. To this day they are making Pinot and Chardonnay that rival some of the great Burgundies.
