Evening Land “Seven Springs” Chardonnay, Eola-Amity Hills 2019
Raj Parr and Sashi Moorman produce extraordinary Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Oregon at Evening Land Vineyards. Their “Seven Springs” Chardonnay is the backbone to all of the white wines that they make. This wine fermented and aged in French oak barrels (30% new) for 12 months followed by six months in steel tanks prior to bottling. On the palate, flavors of yellow and green apples, white flower petals, lemon zest, cream, and hints of warm baking spice lead to a soft, palate-coating finish. For those skeptical of domestic Chardonnay, we promise that this satiny, terroir-reflective expression of the grape promises to please a variety of palates.
