Haden Fig Chardonnay Willamette Valley

"In terms of growing degree-days 2018 was the coolest vintage since 2011, and was only modestly above the 30yr average temps. The timing of that warmth and cooling was fantastic: cool Spring delayed budbreak while a warm May & June allowed the vines to catch up. Summer was warm but greatly cooled off for September’s 6+ week harvest.

Fermented and aged entirely in neutral French oak (228L from Francois Freres). Apple, Meyer lemon and subtle brioche on the the nose followed by a nicely textured mid-palate and bright finish once retaining a bright, fresh acidity complemented by the complex flavors of citrus and mineral." -Erin Nuccio
