Winemaker / Tasting Notes

While Chardonnay can grow in many different climates, it thrives in cool, temperate regions like Oregon. The name Elouan means ‘good light’, which is reflective of the typically cool summers, yet abundant sunshine, found in this northern winegrowing region. The unique climate, diversity of soil types, and the gentle sunlight’s influence on both canopy and fruit form the foundation of this wine’s character. In the cellar, we focus on whole-cluster light pressing of the grapes and allowing them to cold settle. The wine then barrels fermented in French oak (50% new) for 14 months undergoing full malolactic fermentation. The 2018 Elouan Chardonnay has an abundant floral aroma of acacia blossoms and rose petals accompanied by citrus and white pear. Pale straw yellow in color, this Chardonnay has bright acidity with very light oak followed by flavors of tropical fruit, lime zest, and a touch of nectarine. This wine has a smooth and well-balanced mouth-feel, with a lingering and bright finish.
