The 'Freya Hermann Cuvée' Chardonnay is a homage to 00 Wines founder Chris Hermann’s mother, Freya. It is an extremely small production that is sourced from a single high-elevation vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills and spent 23 months in 100% 1 year old Damy French oak 500L barrel. This thrilling Chardonnay slowly unwinds to release a stunning array of aromas that emerge beautifully from this glass, led by ripe white peach, asian pear, lemon oil, toasted hazelnut, flint and crushed stones, which are impossible to resist. The palate is simply striking, beautifully balanced, precise and focused, with layers of delicious fresh orchard fruit flavors that are framed by gorgeous minerality resonating throughout. This is an utterly captivating bottle of Chardonnay that is nothing short of mesmerizing today, but should also continue to evolve beautifully over the course of the next decade.
