Oak Ridge Chardonnay Columbia Gorge - 2017

Analemma's staff consists of seven farm inhabitants and three jersey cows who work out of a converted barn that acts as their production facility and has a tasting "room" right outside the door. Analemma's biodynamic beliefs and commitment to the soil are at the center of everything they do. The Mosier Hills Estate serves as both Analemma's home and its heart. The vineyard was planted in 2012 amid a former eddy of the Missoula Floods that deposited river stones and granitic glacial erratics. Due to its location in the rain shadow of the Cascade Mountains, the estate is also trapped between maritime and continental climates, with an average precipitation of 25-35 inches per year. Analemma achieved Demeter certification in 2017, and 2020 was the first legally approved release. Regenerative and conscientious approaches guide the care of the vineyards, as well as the 10 acres of orchards, lavender plantings, cow pastures, and gardens that comprise the Analemma ecosystem. The aroma of this lively Chardonnay is characterized by notes of jasmine, preserved lemon, and kaffir lime. The chilly climate and alpine setting of this vineyard naturally lends the wine a sense of mineral saline that pairs beautifully with the wine's sumptuous richness and vibrant acidity.
