2017 Stoller Reserve Chardonnay 1.5L

2017 Stoller Reserve Chardonnay 1.5L

WINEMAKER’S NOTES

Our Reserve Chardonnay is a blend of some of our oldest Dijon vines on the property, planted between 1995 and 2000. Whole cluster pressed to mitigate phenolics, this wine was barrel fermented with native yeast. With only 50% malolactic conversion, our Reserve Chardonnay expresses aromatics of lemon curd, flint, white blossom, and wet stone. The palate meets the nose with a citrus vibrancy, revealing a luxurious mouthfeel due to extended lees contact and balanced use of oak.

VINTAGE OVERVIEW 

The 2017 vintage is classically Oregon. Despite a cold winter and cooler than normal spring, ideal weather after flowering created a healthy fruit set, with as much as 20% more berries per cluster than average. Summer was dry and hot, but vines saw little drought stress. By September, everything was on track for a traditional, “normal” Oregon harvest in the Willamette Valley, with Pinot Noir exhibiting outstanding quality. Harvest produced a crop with intense flavor, and perfect sugar and acid level.
