2018 Estate Chardonnay
2018 Estate Chardonnay is crisp clean and very drinkable. If you are looking for the perfect young cool climate Chardonnay, you need look no further!
The goal for this 2018 Estate Chardonnay was to make a crisp, clean and very drinkable Oregon style Chardonnay. 2018 was a warm year with a late rain right before harvest. The early fall rain brought our Chardonnay grapes to the perfect brix right at harvest time. This allowed us to make incredible Chardonnay by bottling after only 6 months in barrels of 100% neutral oak. It is made from 100% Benedetto Vineyards Estate Chardonnay Dijon Clone #96 grapes. These are some of the most coveted grapes, and while many wineries would love to buy some, we keep all of our Chardonnay grapes to make fabulous wine for our customers, wine club members, and family.

Clean, crisp, with the just hint of tart green apple, meyer lemon and minerals. More of the Old World style rather than oak and buttery. I enjoyed the Estate over the Reserve. Of course, like all of Benedetto's wines, simply delicious. Especially on the deck at the tasting room.
