The Gran Moraine vineyard was planted in 2005 to several different Dijon clones. Located five miles west of the town of Carlton this site is one of the more westerly vineyards in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA and therefore subject to the cooling afternoon breezes that roll off the Pacific. A variety of slopes, aspects, row direction, and plant material offer a wide diversity of blocks to choose from when blending our Yamhill-Carlton Chardonnay.
Aromas of white peach, macaroon, navel orange, lemon curd, poached pear, rose petal and apricot blossom. The palate has lively acidity, gravely minerality and flavors of Nashi pear, honeydew melon, Golden Delicious apple and flint followed by a long citrus driven finish.
