Chemistry by Chehalem "Fig.'10" Willamette Valley White Wine
A multi-vintage white blend for everyday drinking from one of our favorite Pacific Northwest wineries. This release of Chemistry is based on the 2010 vintage, with reserve cuvees from 1999, 2007 and 2009, and it contains 53% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Gris, 16% Pinot Blanc, 6% Riesling and 5% Gewürztraminer. Fermented in 61% stainless and 39% neutral French oak. Don't let the varietals in this wine fool you--this is a dry, racy white with fantastic texture from it's time in neutral oak. Apricot, ,citrus blossom, lemon peel, green apple and spice aromas carry from the nose to the palate of this refreshing, affordable beauty. Try it with a grill-roasted chicken, risostto with the season's first Chanterelles or on its own under the stars.
