One of the biggest and brightest stars of Willamette Valley Chardonnay, Walter Scott, has a brand new value Chard stunner. Nearly all of their 2020 single vineyard juice is in Bois-Moi–that's "drink me." Trust us when we say that's exactly what our Chard fans should be doing. Get this while you can, drink it, then get more.
$24.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($27.95 regular)
Us: Walter Scott made only two Chardonnays in 2020: eight barrels of Freedom Hill and Bois-Moi (which means drink me). All of the other juice that’s normally destined for exquisite single vineyard Chards is in here. That alone makes this an eye-popping value but then you sink into it and...sploosh! Like a waterslide of aromas and flavors, the whole wine slides down so easily because of the beautiful texture. Bois-Moi now!
From team Walter Scott: 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. Vineyards: Freedom Hill and Loubejac (Willamette Valley), Hyland (McMinnville), Koosah, Seven Springs, and X Novo (Eola-Amity Hills).
And re-stock your fridge for fall sipping!
Walter Scott Bois-Moi Rosé 2020
$17.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($19.95 regular)
Us: This is tasty rosé! And with no qualifiers or caveats. So often Oregon pink wines miss the mark–too much fruit sweetness, not enough acidity, a combination and more. But our Walter Scott buddies crushed it just like we crushed our bottle of Bois-Moi. Like the words mean in French, “Drink Me” we will.
From team Walter Scott: The resulting rosé is fresh and crisp with a delicate pastel pink color. The inviting nose suggests a touch of flint, cherry blossoms, and zesty oranges while the palate delivers crunchy red berries. The delicate fruit and bright acidity all come together to produce what we feel is a lovely and balanced example of what the Willamette Valley gave us in 2020. 90% Pinot noir from Freedom Hill and Justice vineyards, plus 10% Gamay from Arlyn vineyard.
