    January 12, 2020 - Such a solid Chardonnay from Patricia Green, so much going on and at this price point beats most other Chardonnays from Oregon. The only other Chardonnay I have tried from Dundee Hills is Domaine Serene which is nearly double the price for the same quality. Anyway back to this one, lemon peel, ripe stone fruits, jasmine, yellow apple, a palate which is layered and reminds me so much of a chablis, yet a little richer, with saline, crushed rocks, shell texture along with great purity of fruit. You know its not a Californian Chardonnay and its not a Burgundy Chardonnay, hence you lie in Oregon, however, what I appreciate about this wine is how it really shows the quality of the Dundee Hills appellation comes across with the crushed stones quality. Straight finish. For around $55 CAD this is really enjoyable.

    June 23, 2019 - A very mineral and wet stone style of Chardonnay, I found aromas of sharp green apple, citrus peel, wet stone and concrete. The palate was full of well-textured lemon, crushed rocks and oyster shells. This was very Chablis style with piercing acidity and a strong backbone to match. The Durant vineyard was grown on Volcanic soil and a blend of both Dijon 96 and 76 clones. 10 months mainly in neutral barrels, this wine really shows the quality of fruit and vineyard characteristics of the Dundee Hill Appellation.

    May 17, 2019 - Willamette Valley May 2019; 5/17/2019-5/18/2019: Norma obsessed about this wine but I don't see it. Not super aromatic but pretty citrus notes on nose. Bright, elegant on palate, but not worthy of obsession.
