Fossil & Fawn Chardonnay Willamette Valley 2019
The harvest of 2019 will be remembered for the abundance of precipitation that fell in September and early October. We were lucky to pick perfectly ripe grapes between rain showers. Fruit came from 17-year-old vines at Keisha's Vineyard in The Eola-Amity Hills and 3 7-year-old vines at Sophie's Vineyard in the Umpqua Valley. Everything was pressed, settled and barrel fermented with native yeast in a mix of Oregon & French oak. The wine has bright acidity, rich texture and fresh fruit aromas.
