2017 Gravel Road Chardonnay

New Release! 

* 25% Case Discount *

WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES

"The 2017 vintage was perfect for Chardonnay.

The aromatics are especially lovely, with pear, citrus/quince, with roasted hazelnut, vanilla, and celery stalk savory notes. The palate may be the finest balanced Chardonnay we’ve made at ROCO. Look for passion fruit and floral notes of honeysuckle and pear blossoms framed by lovely chestnut and vanilla bean spice. The fulcrum of ripe fruit to fine citrus acidity is delightful with a finish that is long and full of joy." - Rollin Soles, Winemaker

2016 Wits' End Chardonnay

Only 1 Barrel Made!

WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES

“Aromas of caramel, cashew nut, and pear concentrate, with a hint of coconut flake. The palate has a laser focused white stone minerality wrapped by snappy Asian pear fruit. The finish rides on and on with honeysuckle and steamed bun perfume. Not your typical American chardonnay!” 

-Rollin Soles, Winemaker

2017 Wits' End Chardonnay

WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES

“I always figured our Estate Wits’ End Vineyard would be a fantastic spot for Chardonnay. Its “blonde” soils and perfect gentle southern slopes feel perfect for great Willamette Valley Chardonnay. This first ever Wits’ End Vineyard chardonnay did not disappoint! The aromatics indicate a crisp, freshness with a lovely mix of white nectarine flesh, streamside grass, white flowers, vanilla and fresh eggnog spices. The flavor is simply vivacious! Lush plus, reminiscent of roasted summer vegetables: lemon grass, celery, Jerusalem artichoke, then a layer of pear and white nectarine fruit. The mouth feel builds weight going into the mid-palate. Natural cool climate Chardonnay vanilla and fresh cream flavors kick in toward the finish with a touch of spiced, citrus fruit that sail on and on." -Rollin Soles, Winemaker

2015 Marsh Estate Vineyard Chardonnay

WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES

“Some of the greatest Chardonnays in the world express a lovely floral aroma when young and this Marsh Estate has this rare characteristic. There are profound notes of bosc pear blossom alongside fresh rose petal with a hint of chamomile on the nose. The palate is electric with a refreshing acidity framed by a citrus lemon crème and the promise of nectarine and honeycomb in its age worthy future. This wine has a combination of depth and finesse with a lively finish.” - Rollin Soles, Winemaker

2015 Knudsen Vineyards Chardonnay

WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES

“The warm 2015 summer produced ripe, luscious fruit flavors and texture. In combination with Knudsen Vineyards late ripening, high elevation and an acid-saving cold front at the end of August, these elements all converged to produce this fantastic Chardonnay. The aromas are a mix of Asian pear and honey-crisp apple fruit with characteristically cool region spice, vanilla, white flower complexity. The flavors are a seamless, full throttle, ripe tree fruit of white nectarine and comice pear. Yet they still have lively acidity and minerality, which are definite palate players. The finish travels forever. Enjoy this wine as an aperitif and notice the refreshing acidity. Then, carry it into a meal to bring out the vanilla and nectarine succulence.” - Rollin Soles, Winemaker
