2020 Walter Scott 'Bois-Moi' Chardonnay, Willamette Valley   

Our approach to Chardonnay pays attention to texture and structure, translating site and vintage. In 2020 the grapes were crushed and pressed quickly, under gentle pressure to liberate the juice from the skins as quickly as possible. The juice was fermented with 100% ambient yeast and full malolactic conversion in large barrels with very little bâtonnage. The wine was lightly filtered prior to bottling to brighten aromatics and give us a polished finish. The result is a chardonnay showcasing density and precision. The nose highlights evolving layers of exotic aromas reminiscent of fresh tangerine, nectarine and meyer lemon, with the palate providing a richly textured wine with mineral and saline characters on the finish.
