Flaneur 2019 Chardonnay, La Belle Promenade Vineyard, Willamette Valley
Baking spice, vanilla custard and sweet tapioca play with aromas of Meyer lemon, citrus rind and floral honeysuckle. On the palate a pronounced briny salinity leads into flavors of grapefruit, lemon lime citrus, kumquat and a touch of cedar. The plate showcases racy mouthwatering acid, medium body with age-worthy structure and a lengthy finish.
La Belle Promenade Vineyard is comprised of 33 acres of vines planted in 2014. The vineyard is home to volcanic soils ranging in diversity from a thick layer of fractured basalt in our shallow rooted southwestern blocks and deeper volcanic Saum soils in the southeastern corner of the vineyard. The crops we harvest from La Belle Promenade produce characteristic floral notes that cling to acidity and tell the story of the orchard fruits that once grew here.
