Crowley Wines, Chardonnay Four Winds Willamette Valley, 2018

$52.99
Available for Same Day Delivery (or Pickup) in Manhattan.
Originally planted in 1993 at 800 feet to Wente clone, there is now a new clone, Draper in the mix, adding more complexity than ever. The nose is salty with wet stone, cement, herb and flinty notes. Rounded out by hits of the usual lemon/lime and pear, but almost austere fruit is backed with an angular yet rich mouthfeel. The oak is subtle and elegant. Dried apricot comes out on the finish as this wine stays clean, mouthwatering, rich, and long.

From Oregon’s Willamette Valley, Crowley Wines is producing some of the finest domestic Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays we know. Since its founding in 2005, the emphasis at Crowley has been terroir-focused and Burgundy-influenced Pinots and Chardonnays from some of Oregon’s top sites; this means high elevation, cool climate and a diverse range of soil types (not difficult in the Willamette, where volcanic basalt yields to marine sediment and silt). The work in the vines and in the cellar is minimal.

Prior to establishing Crowley wines, Tyson Crowley worked alongside John Paul at another Willamette winery, Cameron. There, he learned to work according to the season, the climate and the individual vine in front of him, all to preserve the purity of the fruit and the terroir.
