2003 Chardonnay, Willamette Valley, 12×750 ml.

This Chardonnay is from the new Oracle Vineyard in the Dundee Hills owned and managed by David Autrey and Amy Wesselman of Westrey Wine Company. They were kind enough in 2003 to sell Frameworks a lot of Chardonnay just adequate for one barrel. The grapes were from forgotten Draper clone Chardonnay vines on the property which David and Amy have revived since purchasing the vineyard. The wine was fermented in neutral oak with extended lees aging – 16 months. Complete malolatic fermentation. Bottled unfiltered. A chance to taste the promise of the Oracle vineyard before it becomes a cult.
