Matzinger-Davies Chardonnay 2016

The 2016 Chehelam Mountains Chardonnay is an elegant interpretation of both the site and soils. Opening with aromas of sweet pea and apple blossom, these spring flowers move to citrusy kumquat and lemon, waxy quince and persimmon to a hint of nearby bakery. The floral-sweet aroma of summertime dry prairie grasses is here and on the palate melds with notes of white nut meats, lemon and pear. This wine has supple and elegant lines, a notion of minerality like cool water on warm granite streamside in the mountains and unfolds gracefully, expanding in texture and mouthfeel and finishing long with a touch of saline.

WINEMAKER NOTES

Acclaimed winemakers Anna Matzinger & Michael Davies established the Matzinger Davies Wine Company with the intention of crafting wines with a resonant voice speaking to their geographic origin, varietal typicity and season. Authenticity, vibrancy and integrity should be their calling cards. Michael is currently Executive Winemaker for both REX HILL and A to Z Wineworks in Newberg, Oregon and Anna consults in winemaking after a long and successful tenure as winemaker & co-GM for Archery Summit in the Dundee

“We’ve spent many years making wine separately in exceptional cellars both internationally and for the last two decades mastering our craft in Oregon. Matzinger Davies is an opportunity for us to collaborate creatively on a pursuit of our own. Our focus is small lot AVA-based Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Willamette Valley and single-site Sauvignon Blanc and Grenache from the Columbia River Gorge. ”
