Our 2017 Willamette Valley Chardonnay lays down the benchmark for what great Chardonnay from this region can be. The hand-harvested fruit comes from our estate vineyards in the Chehalem Mountains, and various other diverse sites across the north Willamette Valley.
The 2016 Staking Claim Chardonnay highlights the beauty of the Chehalem Mountains. With fruit grown on all three of the major soil types of this region, 71% from Adelsheim’s estate vineyards, this wine captures what is truly special about our home. Delicate florals and soft oak spiciness highlight the fruit, creating a wine that showcases the uniqueness and diversity of our backyard.
The 2016 Ribbon Springs Chardonnay is Adelsheim’s debut 100% estate-grown single vineyard Chardonnay. The inimitable characteristics of this land perfectly align with the style of Chardonnay that we find most captivating. The high elevation and eastern aspect deliver a wine with linear structure and amazing complexity and intensity. It has a fine balance between fruit, flowers, stone, and smoke, and the tension and on the palate give way to an incredibly long, finessed finish.
