Wholly sourced from our volcanic-soiled monopole, Mahonia, in the un-officially designated South Salem Hills. Apple, Meyer lemon curd, and stone fruit with a bit of brioche and a whisper of creme brulee on the the nose followed by a nicely textured mid-palate while retaining a bright, fresh acidity. -the winery
2018 vintage notes
94 points Wine Enthusiast, Editors' Choice: "Haden Fig is a sister label to Evesham Wood. This stunningly good effort could hold its own with many Oregon Chardonnays costing three times as much. Tangy grapefruit, lemon and lime aromas open into a sappy and delicious wine with exceptional depth of flavor. There's a pretty floral top note and a generous mouthfeel. The wine was fermented in neutral barrels with native yeast, went through full malolactic and excels on all levels."
A $25 Chard that drinks like a $40 Chard. Texture and weight that far surpasses its value, and elevates above any previous vintage of Haden Fig Chard. I made crab risotto with a fresh crab stock and this matched perfectly. Lemons, fresh fall orchard fruits (our farmers market is loaded with heirloom pears and apples, so it's fresh on my mind), subtle spice accents, warm minerals, and then that amazingly silken texture that lets the flavors resound like a choir in a cathedral. - Marcus
