Chehalem Inox Willamette Valley Chardonnay 2014

When chardonnay is fermented in stainless steel (Inox, in French), it exhibits gorgeous, mineral-driven fruit that can range from crispy apples through citrus fruits and even range into tropical fruit notes. The acidity remains intact, making the wine “pop” on the palate with energy and verve. Most importantly, none of those great characteristics are drowned out by oak barrel seasoning. This wine may be Chehalem’s most popular product, and for very good reason. It has been one of our best-selling whites for years. Delicious, and well-priced.

To describe this as a warm weather gulper is to discount the fact that this is a damn serious wine. Super green on the nose, but still some toast (but obviously zero wood). It has a blast of ghee in it, along with some mulberries. Oregon is making me happy.
