2016 was a hot year and these Benedetto Estate Chardonnay grapes may have thought they were vacationing in Napa. This allowed winemaker Steve Anderson and Lisa to make a simply amazing California style oaky Chardonnay. Patience was key as this Chardonnay spent 3 years in the perfect oak barrels before Lisa said, "let's bottle it now." This Willamette Valley Chardonnay is made from 100% Benedetto Estate Chardonnay Dijon Clone #96 grapes. We truly hope you love our 2016 Reserve Chardonnay as much as we do. We believe you'll be amazed at how fun, unique and delectable it is.
