Salem Wine Co. Chardonnay 'Eola-Amity Hills'
notes from Skurnik Wines:
The second label from Raj Parr and Sashi Moorman’s Evening Land Vineyards, Salem Wine Co. provides exceptional value with wines made from estate fruit at ‘négociant’ prices. The 2018 Salem Wine Co. Chardonnay is predominantly sourced from the west-facing Block 9 at Seven Springs. This gently sloped hillside is composed of iron-rich clay. Upon arrival at the winery the grapes are gently pressed into neutral 500L puncheons. The wine undergoes a native primary fermentation and completes a full malolactic conversion. After a year the wine is racked to tank where it naturally clarifies before bottling. Planted in 1984, Seven Springs has since become one of Oregon’s most celebrated and award-winning vineyards. The iron rich, rocky, and volcanic soils are nestled against a forest of Douglas fir with eastern exposure that welcomes the morning sun. Seven Springs vineyard has been dry-farmed since its’ inception. In 2007, the vineyard was converted to biodynamic farming and also became LIVE certified. Planted to mostly Pinot Noir, followed by Chardonnay and Gamay, many of the oldest blocks of Pinot Noir and Gamy remain own-rooted—a reminder of Oregon’s incredible history. Sourced predominantly from Block 9 at Seven Springs .

A historically dry vintage, the 2018 Salem Wine Co. Chardonnay is rich in both concentration and texture. Notes of toasted almond skin mix with rich, brûléed citrus notes to form a compelling aromatic profile. The wine’s signature is its surprisingly rich mid-palate that is deftly counterbalanced with a bright clean finish.
