Along with Cristom Estate fruit, we select esteemed neighboring vineyards based on their varying attributes, including volcanic soils, in order to craft a Chardonnay with the duality of generosity and tension. The fruit from Eola Springs, Paul Gerrie, and Royer vineyards has defining acidity and phenolics and comprises the structural skeleton of the wine. Von Oehson, Seven Springs, Stiling, and estate vineyards Eileen and Louise flesh out the body of the wine, creating a balance of fresh citrus and floral components, and inviting texture and mouthfeel. The 2021 Chardonnay is aromatically complex, and with concentrated nuance, delivering intermingled notes of brioche, chamomile, and sweet citrus, all woven in a matrix of salinity that drives a lasting finish.

Ripe cantaloupe, sweet hay, coconut and butter aromas make for a nice introduction to this wine. Tangy acidity frames pear, lemon tart, mint and toasted filbert flavors. The wine feels crisp and fresh in the mouth. Some Dungeness crab cakes would make a nice dinner companion.

Each of the whites from Cristom pours a bright yellow hue. The 2021 Chardonnay Eola-Amity Hills is fresh and floral with notes of quince, yellow flowers, and honeycomb. Medium-bodied, with ripe golden fruit on the palate and fresh underlying acidity to balance things out nicely, it's drinking well now and will drink well over the next 4-6 years.

The 2021 Chardonnay Eola-Amity Hills opens with a rich blend of crushed yellow apples, mint, whole butter and stone dust. This is a soft, round and distinctly savory effort with a pronounced mineral core and tart orchard fruits cascading throughout. It finishes with medium length and a lemony concentration, tapering off flinty and tense.
