Description

Chardonnay at bethel heights chardonnay presents the perfect opportunity to experience terroir through a lens other than pinot noir. Six different blocks of chardonnay planted between 1977 and 2001 in various sites around our estate vineyards yield a fascinating diversity of character and style. And yet taken together they are unmistakably bethel heights. The 2014 vintage: this was our warmest vintage on record at bethel heights presenting the possibility of over-wrought wines marked by the character of the growing season and not of the place they are grown. We made a bold potentially risky decision to leave a larger than usual crop on the vines to slow everything down and it paid off with beautiful balanced wines. 2014 was a year when great wine could only be made in the vineyard. Vinification: the fruit was whole-cluster pressed barrel fermented in neutral 500l oak puncheons traditional 228 l barrels and one 3000l foudre (a big oval shaped oak tank). The new wine was aged on the lees with complete malolactic fermentation and bottled after eleven months in barrel. Tasting notes: our 2014 estate chardonnay has all of the characteristics we look for from truly great warm oregon vintages: energy tension between the acidity and fruit a suppleness and body in the mid palate and a long harmonious finish. This wine should age gracefully over the next seven to ten years. – bethel heights
