92+ Points Wine Advocate 

"The 2016 Chardonnay Yamhill-Carlton has a lovely open nose of spiced apples, acacia honey, lemon cream, toast and dried white flowers. Medium-bodied with a great creamy texture, it fills the mouth with layers of honey toast, cream, ripe orchard fruits and spice, with great mouthwatering acidity and a long floral finish."

Additional Details


"The Gran Moraine vineyard was planted in 2005 to several different Dijon clones. Located five miles west of  the town of  Carlton this site is one of  the more westerly vineyards in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA and therefore subject to the cooling afternoon breezes that roll off  the Pacific. A variety of  slopes, aspects, row direction, and plant material offer a wide diversity of  blocks to choose from when blending our Yamhill-Carlton Chardonnay.

The 2016 Chardonnay was hand-harvested in the crisp dawn air of  early autumn, then quickly brought into the winery for gentle, whole-cluster pressing. This traditional technique allows Gran Moraine to capture the freshest and most pristine juice from our Chardonnay grapes. After a briefperiod of  settling, the juice was transferred to French oak barrels from Burgundy, 11% of  which were new wood. There the juice underwent a lengthy natural fermentation that took as long as 12 months to complete. During this time, we utilized monthly battonage—stirring of  the lees—to develop the wine’s texture and secondary characteristics. After 16 months in barrel, the wine was fully racked to an outdoor stainless steel tank and left to mature in the cold Northwest winter. This extended outdoor aging provided natural cold stability to the wine, as well as the opportunity to evolve and coalesce into its finished state."
