Arterberry Maresh Chardonnay: We Can't Get Enough!
Happy Friday Oregon wine fans,
Jim Arterberry Maresh is making the best wines of his career, fully on display in his brand new Chardonnays. First up, his Dundee Hills Chard 2017, which has become a favorite of our Chardonnay fans, selling like hotcakes at a hotcake festival. It's an outstanding value not only in Oregon Chard but in the world of Chardonnay. Get it while you can! And if you're feeling bold, step into Jim's Maresh Vineyard Chard '17. Wow.
Our quickest selling Oregon Chardonnay returns for a vintage that is absolutely electrifying! Mouthwatering goodness comes from a mix of lemon and green apple with white flowers and flint. A subtle briny note gets the juices flowing while a creamy persistence sails. Like the Dundee Hills Pinot, I could drink this all day. A blend of Maresh and Dux Vineyards. - Marcus

Immediate depth, volume and power, still holding true to the elegant style of Arterberry Maresh. A rounder texture delivers generous golden fruits, white peach and apricot, with pretty chamomile and mellow ginger accents. A Chardonnay rainbow with a pot of gold at each end. Entirely from the original 1983 planting of Chardonnay in Maresh. - Marcus

Utterly crushable. Fresh strawberry and cherry aromas and flavors are everywhere, and impossible to resist (hence, the crushable part). The first bottle I opened at the house was gone in 15 minutes...and there were only three of us! It's that kind of juice, similar to the Old Vines, that's pure, fresh, silky, sexy -- why we seek Pinot noir. - Marcus

A blend of Maresh (~70%) and Weber (~30%) Vineyards, sporting an average vine age of 42 (that's forty two) years, 2017 Old Vines is perfumed and heavenly -- it's the kind of wine we love to drink. Exquisitely fresh and silky, we find it totally irresistible. Weighing in at only 12.8% alcohol, it is delightfully buoyant and everything we've always loved about Arterberry Maresh Pinot noirs, and that is a lot, rolled into one.
More classically Dundee than the 2016, it is pure red-fruited elegance. A slightly cooler vintage meant that Maresh was picked in October and any time that vineyard is picked in October, we start getting excited. Jim is really happy and really proud of this wine. And he damn well should be.
We're looking forward to helping you with an order. Thanks for your support and have a great weekend!
