2018 marks the inaugural release of Crisom Vineyards' Eola-Amity Hills Chardonnay, featuring fruit from our own estate Louise and Paul Gerrie vineyards, as well as five other neighboring sites in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. Though we are no strangers to Chardonnay, having produced the varietal since our founding in 1992, this new release marks the joyful expansion of Cristom's Chardonnay program, both through collaborating with extraordinary winegrowers we're fortunate to call neighbors, as well as the expansion of Chardonnay plantings on the Cristom Estate. Exhibiting an exquisite texture created by full malolactic fermentation in barrel, the 2018 Eola-Amity Hills Chardonnay offers racy acidity, with notes of Asian pear and Meyer lemon zest before delivering a lengthy, refreshing finish.
