Proof that Oregon is capable of top-class chardonnay. Vibrant acidity, citrus, and crisp apple notes meet a deep, slightly buttery—and very long—finish. Beautiful and amazing value.

Bright medium yellow in color with aromas of lemon, green apple, and white flowers. The palate is driven by racy acidity and stony minerality. Combines fruit from predominantly Nekia soils in Salem’s Bunker Hill, Eola-Amity Hills including Lingua Franca Estate Vineyard, Yamhill-Carlton, and a small contribution from Laubejac Vineyard near Monmouth in Willakenzie soils. Very pleasant entry level wine. 13% ABV. $35.

New project by MS Larry Stone. Elegant, restrained and exceptionally food-friendly, Burgundian-styled Chard. Good things to come from this winery in the future.
