Centerstone Willamette Valley Chardonnay 2017, Citation

Producer: Citation Wine
“We began developing Erratic Oaks Vineyard over ten years ago, and I continue to be awe-struck each year: Beautiful acreage in the upcoming Pisgah sub-AVA of the Willamette Valley, just across the road from the renowned Freedom Hill Vineyard, but with a slightly warmer Southwest facing orientation.” – Howard Rossbach

Centerstone Willamette Valley Chardonnay reflects the wonderful intense fruit that we grow at our L.I.V.E. certified sustainable Erratic Oaks Vineyard.  It is the pure expression of our site or terroir as we do not use any oak in the winemaking process.

Upon harvest the grapes were pressed into stainless steel tanks to ferment.  After the primary fermentation the wine went through a partial malo-lactic fermentation, which further enhanced the body. 

Ripe fresh apple, pineapple and pear aromas mingle with crisp, yet rich flavors on the palette and an extraordinary long finish.
