This Chardonnay is a blend of our Ribbon Ridge Estate and Coast Range Estate vineyards. This wine shows gorgeous aromatics of orange blossom, kumquat and fresh French baguette, with spicy notes of ginger and nutty toasted oak. Bright flavors of orchard fruits and citrus zest lead to toasted hazelnuts, sourdough bread, and vanilla cream. Firm acidity carries the fruit and mineral through on the lingering finish.
In 2003, Andrea and James Frey founded Trisaetum in one of the few places where climate, soil, and entrepreneurial spirit combine to produce some of the world’s best wines. Today, the family owned and operated winery in the heart of Oregon’s Ribbon Ridge AVA produces small lots of acclaimed Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Riesling from its three estate vineyards.
We harvested from our three estate vineyards over four different dates between September 13th on the Ribbon Ridge Estate; and concluded on October 16th when the last of our fruit from the Coast Range Estate made its way to the winery. All ferments started with natural yeasts and spent 11 months in barrel on fine lees.
Pairs well with pork, rich fish such as shellfish and tuna, vegetarian dishes, and poultry dishes.
