Ken Wright Cellars Chardonnay Savoya Vineyard 2020

America, Oregon
Best-seller

This Chardonnay is from a half acre planting of Dijon 548 clone. This clone is a precocious ripener, often harvested before Pinot noir. Clusters and berries are both small in size, leading to naturally low crop levels and intense aroma and flavor.

Remaining on the lees in barrel through fermentation and aging creates a beautiful silken mouth feel on this Yamhill-Carlton Chardonnay. Detailed qualities of honeysuckle, lemon curd, pear and brioche play on the note and palate. While integrated touches of oak allow a brilliant acidity to shine.

Winery Description

Located in rural Carlton, Oregon, Ken Wright Cellars is devoted to single vineyard Pinot Noir that showcase the terroir of some of the Willamette Valley's top vineyards. Assiduous attention is paid to optimal site selection and vineyard health. Source is everything. When you work with great sites, great things can happen. These great things cannot happen without a commitment by the Vineyard owner to the health of the vineyard and extremely low crop levels that ensure intensity of aroma, flavor and texture. Certain things in this world are better left alone. Minimal handling of the wine is essential to preserve what it is, a gift of nature. This winemaking philosophy defines Ken Wright Cellars. Ken Wright is very active in local charities and was instrumental in organizing the six new American Viticultural Areas that define the Northern Willamette Valley. Ken wrote the proposition for the Yamhill-Carlton AVA and served as the association's first President.
