2011 Chemistry by Chehalem "Fig.'11" Willamette Valley White Wine

SKU #1106676

Maybe I'm just on an acid kick right now, but another wine I loved this month and can't wait to drink a keg's worth of is the Chemistry-Fig. 11. This has certainly been a favorite of the K&L staff over the last couple of years, and the good news is that I truly believe that this is the best bottling yet of this delicious, inexpensive white. The blend of 40% Pinot Blanc, 37% Gewürztraminer, 12% Riesling, 6% Chardonnay and 5% Pinot Gris seems to be a touch zestier and more focused than in years past, and the miniscule amount of residual sugar that is in the wine makes the flavors pop like Technicolor. This is a perfect patio/porch wine and would be great with grilled veggies and sea bass. (Bryan Brick, K&L Domestic wine buyer)

This is a delicious and fun wine. It is full of energy and wonderful flavors. The Chemistry is soft and round with a delicate floral component that enhances this wine. Great alone,it will go well with fish or fowl.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

- Highly touted for its Pinot Noirs, Oregon is part of the up-and-coming winemaking industry in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. Most of Oregon is directly affected by the climate coming off of the Pacific Ocean, giving it mild winters and wet summers. This makes it a difficult place to ripen grapes, but some say that the harder grapes have to struggle, the more complex they will turn out to be. Chardonnay and Pinot Gris are two important and successful grapes grown in Oregon.
