A perfect sipper or meal accompaniment, our straw-colored 2014 Chardonnay is crisp, mineral and fruit-driven. Its finish is smooth, lengthy and accentuated with a kiss of oak.

A First Taste of a Friend’s First Chardonnay

March 28, 2016

by Jeff Burrows


Eye: Clear, medium gold color with a pale edge.

Nose: Medium plus intensity, aromas of underripe pears and floral notes of gardenia.

Mouth: Medium body with lively acidity and a nice persistent finish. A touch of oak is there, but it’s just a hint. A beautifully done Oregon Chardonnay, nice and lean with lots of tension. We can’t wait for the estate version in the coming years.

It’s a Monday night, so we had just pulled out some leftover Potée Champenoise from the freezer. We couldn’t wait any longer to try our friends’ Chardonnay, so we wanted something suitable, it was perfect as was the iOTA Cellars Chardonnay!
