Evening Land 2021 Chardonnay Seven Springs, Eola-Amity Hills, Oregon
Year in and year out, our Seven Springs Chardonnay remains the foundation to all that we do at Evening Land Vineyards. Crafted entirely from estate-grown fruit, the grapes for this wine come from Burgundian clones rooted in a rockier portion of our Seven Springs vineyard. Coupled with the vines’ mid-slope position, the final wine is textured, zesty, and very much speaks to the place from which it comes. On the palate, soft flavors of baked stone fruit, green apple skin, lemon cream, toast, and sweet spice lead to an acid-laden finish hinted with notes of white flowers and grilled nuts. The wine’s zingy acidity and saline-streaked palate promise to satisfy a diverse array of white wine lovers, even those skeptical of domestic Chardonnay. Think of it like satiny, silky-smooth sunshine in a glass.
