$58.45 in any 12 bottled or Build a Case order ($64.95 regular)

It took a couple days to decide but as of this morning, this is the favorite of the line-up. Distinct and beautifully textured Chardonnay, mixing a lemony intensity with sweet tangerine, plump summer peach, and salty minerals. X Novo's Chardonnay plantings are some of the most exciting and diverse on the West Coast. - us

Exotic and striking, scented with jasmine, gardenia, lemon blossoms, white peach, and flint. The palate frames balance and concentration effortlessly, showing notes of lemon drops, candied tangerine peel, fennel, and wet stones, welcoming a salty, mouth-watering finish. - the winery

Until this morning, Seven Springs was our consensus favorite...we are still loving it. Seven Springs delivers the aromatic fireworks: yellow and orange citrus, garden herbs in spring, liquid minerals, all leading to a powerful finish with a light touch. - us

Our Seven Springs Chardonnay has intense aromatics leaning towards lemon curd, pineapple, slightly ripe strawberry, peach blossoms, and orange peel. The palate reveals acute concentration, with layers of white nectarine, lemon spritz and a sprinkle of salt. Seven Springs is densely textured with a long taught finish. - the winery

Racy! Lemon-lime big time. Whereas Freedom Hill produces structured and bold Pinots, its Chardonnay yields delicacy with excellent, persistent minerality. - us

Our 2018 Freedom Hill Chardonnay has delicate aromas of tangerine blossom, yellow peach, preserved lemon, and mirabelle plum layered with lemon thyme, wet stones, and yellow roses. The palate is a balance of density and elegance, with racy acidity and a long mineral finish. - the winery

This reserve blend represents Ken and Erica's vision of Oregon Chardonnay; they are among the handful of Oregon producers driving the Chardonnay conversation. Cuvée Anne is a tribute to Erica (Anne is her middle name). When Ken met Erica, he had wine in barrel but says he’d still be fumbling around if Erica hadn’t “pushed him off the ledge” into full-time winemaking. - us

This wine boasts clarity and precision, leading with supple aromas of Meyer lemon zest, green pear, and white peach, layered with floral notes of honeysuckle, lemon myrtle, orange blossom, and a hint of oyster shells. The palate is intricately fruity with freshness at the forefront, followed by a focused acidity. - the winery
