2020 Stoller Reserve Chardonnay
Luscious and vibrant, this Chardonnay is iconic Oregon. I enjoy the textural and purposeful body this wine showcases year after year. Complex with notes of ginger and flint, but distinct flavors of Meyer lemon and honeysuckle, this bottle will complement any dish on your table.
The 2020 vintage will be one of the most memorable in our history. Rainfall during bloom coupled with cool temperatures set the stage for a historically low fruit set. The summer was delightfully moderate, and by the end of August, concentrated juice from tiny grape berries was intense with robust flavors. Harvest kicked off on August 28 and continued beautifully through Labor Day. Then, we experienced a freak windstorm that resulted in wildfires due to hot temperatures and arid conditions. Our team decided to continue with harvest to preserve our grapes. Meticulous sorting and attentive winemaking were essential to achieving our quality standards. We are fortunate to have some of the finest wine we can produce in bottle.
