BROWSING ONLY
Need a reason to drink more Chardonnay? This is it. Aged in French oak, Winemaker Shane Moore strikes a balance between focused acidity and a layer of rich, creamy, palate-coating texture. With aromas of Gravenstein apple and buttermilk biscuits, this wine's silky brightness combined with flavors of Meyer lemon and starfruit will keep you coming back for more. Oregon may be known for its Pinot Noir, but one sip of this Yamhill-Carlton Chardonnay and you'll see why wine lovers are raving over this sophisticated stunner.
