WALTER SCOTT Chardonnay, Freedom Hill Vineyard 2018

Planted in 1981 by Dan and Helen Dusschee, the ‘Freedom Hill Vineyard’ is one of the older sites for Chardonnay in the Willamette Valley. The wine was aged in 40% new French oak for twelve months before bottling. A dusting of volcanic soil greets you immediately as layers of lemon zest and bright pear all come together aromatically in the glass. The palate has great freshness and verve with a silky texture and gobs of lip-smacking acidity. Bright lemon rind and unripe melon flavors connect with wet stone and wild mushroom accents. A complete wine, the 2018 ‘Freedom Hill Vineyard’ Chardonnay will age gracefully for many years to come.
