One 12-bottle case of 2020 Cristom Vineyards ¡Salud! Cuvée Chardonnay
50% Seven Springs Vineyard; 50% Eola Springs Vineyard
Cristom Vineyards produces site specific, distinctive wines of place with a focus on the Eola-Amity Hills in the Willamette Valley. Eola-Amity hills fruit can create the tension that we love in our wines.
Chardonnay from the vineyard sites in the Eola-Amity Hills strike a balance between generous citrus and floral components while retaining crunchy, mouth-watering acidity leading to the structure and longevity we want for our Chardonnay. The winemaking is a culmination of our experiences rooted in tradition and the empirical knowledge passed on by our mentors and predecessors.
The wine was fermented in two, one-year-old 500L puncheons. One of the vessels was a French oak puncheon coopered by Tonnellerie Fouilly and the other by Austrian cooper Stockinger. Both primary fermentation and malolactic fermentation were completed using natural organisms without the aid of commercial inoculation in barrel.
The wines were aged in oak for approximately 11 months before being racked to a stainless steel vessel where the wine could marry for several months before bottling.
