Arterberry Maresh Chardonnay Maresh Vineyard, Dundee Hills OR 2018
We are best known for our Pinot Noirs but we have a special place in our hearts for Chardonnay. Jim’s style is more Chablis than California – he makes a sophisticated, Chablis-style Chardonnay with tremendous complexity and nuanced flavors.
"The 2018 Chardonnay Maresh Vineyard manages power and elegance, with gunﬂint notes that ﬂush out to pure roasted almonds, saline, white ﬂowers and apple fruit on the nose. The palate oﬀers intense, savory ﬂavor layers in an elegant, satin-like frame, with dynamic acidity and a long, ethereal ﬁnish. This has the ﬂesh and structure to age very well in bottle."
