Walter Scott's Cuvee Anne Chardonnay is blended from the best Chardonnay sites including Freedom Hill, X Novo, Sojourner, Seven Springs and Justice Vineyards. It is a reserve blend that represents their vision of Willamette Valley Chardonnay. The juice was fermented with ambient yeast, minimal batonnage, and aged in a mix of new and neutral 500 and 350 liter barrels for 12 months. The wine is finally racked and blended to stainless steel for an additional 3 months prior to bottling.
This wine leads with beautiful aromas of nectarine, yellow peach, white flowers and a touch of nuttiness. The palate has great balance with a strong sense of minerality and a long graceful finish.
