Tasting Notes

The 2018 Arthur tips its hat to an excellent, stylish 2018 vintage. Aromas of spiced pear, quince, white flowers and a touch of honey lift from the glass. The mouthfeel shows slightly more weight than the 2017 while keeping its vibrant, lithe qualities. Spiced fruit shines on the palate, balanced by a long, citrus-driven finish. Enjoy now through 2026. Santé!

Production Notes

Our 2018 Chardonnay was hand-picked into small totes, and then whole-cluster pressed. It was partly fermented in French Oak barrels to reveal the complexity of the fruit through the slow breathing process that happens in wood. The rest was fermented and aged in stainless steel to keep the vibrancy and fruitiness. Véronique then blended these two portions to create a wine of a more delicate nature - Arthur. To Véronique, it’s as if one brought together elements of a pure Chablis and an elegant Meursault.
 

Vintage Notes

Our exceptional run of vintages here in Oregon continues with 2018. The season started on a slightly wet and cool note leading to late bud break, but caught up quickly. After dry weather and occasional heat spikes in July and August, the end of summer brought comfortable temperatures, a little rainfall, and the perfect set up for harvest.
