The 2015 Pike Road Chardonnay is a rich and fruity take on this classic Willamette Valley white wine.

The 2015 Vintage

The 2015 Vintage 2015 was another warm year for Oregon’s Willamette Valley. The growing season began early with fine weather during bloom leading to a larger than average fruit set. In spite of generous thinning, sunny summertime weather meant a plentiful crop that was ready early. To avoid overripe fruit, harvest was compressed into a busy three-week period. Thankfully, cool nighttime temperature ensured we did not lose the classic freshness that is a hallmark of great Willamette Valley wine.
