CHARDONNAY

2017 En Avant Southern Oregon Chardonnay

Tasting Notes:

This Chardonnay begins and ends with the earth. It leads with a chalky, dusty soil, mineral driven nose. These earthy characteristics gently blend into citrus elements on the palate, primarily pomelo and sweet tangerine. The earth comes full circle on the finish, which is soft and resinous with balsam and tobacco flower. This wine, in all its complexity, reminds you the world is full of intrigue.

2017 En Croix Southern Oregon Chardonnay

Tasting Notes:

Dusty minerality, lemon zest, and honeysuckle mingling on the nose creates a very approachable Chardonnay. The medium body gives way to flavors of wet stone and a hint of pineapple. The finish is highlighted by a refreshing acidity and touch of stone fruit. READ MORE

2017 Chaîné Southern Oregon Chardonnay

Tasting Notes:

The dense floral nature of key lime is dominant on the nose accompanied by a gentle oak treatment and a touch of just-ripe melon. The bright aromatics drift into green apple, warm sugar, and an earthy note of cardamom on the palate. This bright wine keeps a refreshing finish with a lovely and surprising undertone of anise. It lends itself perfectly to back patio conversations and is best enjoyed when shared.

Citrus aromas abound in this wine leaping from tangerine, to lime zest, and hints of orange blossom, all with an underpinning of minerality.

2017 Capriccio Southern Oregon Chardonnay

Tasting Notes:

A perfect union between acid and oak gives this wine a fresh approachable nose with notes of melon, lemon zest, and a spark of minerality. The oak provides a regal backbone to the body, adding structure and weight to the mid palate, all the while allowing the fruit to take the forefront. A soft but zippy finish makes this a superb summer wine to pair with a light charcuterie board, Waldorf salad, or hazelnut crusted halibut. READ MORE

Tasting Notes:

Subtle aromas of Honey Crisp apple, roasted grains like fresh baked almond granola and a hint of pineapple upside-down cake foretell a wine of balance with ample yet not over-the-top fruit attributes. On the palate, balance is again the story. Broad and palate coating upon entry, with restraint in the mid palate, the wine finishes with refreshing delicacy. Just a hint of spice from the barrel and a dash of wet stone-like minerality add complexity. READ MORE

2016 Allonge Southern Oregon Chardonnay

Tasting Notes:

Honey and straw delight on the nose while a touch of stone, reminiscent of wet slate, ambles slowly behind. The body is round, plush, creamy and consumes the palate but eventually gives way to a lighter path of nectarine and Crenshaw melon, wreathed in minerality. The acidity lends itself to a lean but balanced finish that tempts another sip. READ MORE

Review by Michael Cervin:

Writer for Forbes Travel Guide, Decanter (London), Fine Wine & Liquor (China), Wine Enthusiast, Wine & Spirits, The Tasting Panel and Sommelier Journal, among others:

Oregon Chardonnay is not a calling card. Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris rank above Chardonnay in terms of wines produced in this state, but nonetheless Oregon Chardonnay does offer diverse expressions and none quite like the DANCIN label from Southern Oregon’s Medford region. A subversive Chardonnay that drinks more like an old world Chablis, this is a quiet wine, one that does not announce itself with boisterous oak, ML or anything other than an alluring nod. Only bottled seven months ago from the time of this writing, this is an anomaly – a wine so bright, clean and fresh it belies the stereotype of Chardonnay altogether. It offers subtle notes of kefir lime and pineapple, lemon zest, summer wildflowers, with back notes of baked Brie, and Graham cracker. There is a wonderful compelling acidity, minerality and crispness one does not find often, in spite of the fact this was aged on the lees and hand stirred once a month. In essence, this is the antithesis of the Chardonnay butter bomb, and a reminder of how good and delicate Chardonnay can actually be, and how Oregon continues to express itself with wines that find their own sense of place.

Tasting Notes:

Golden in color, with delicate aromas of pear, freshly baked fig bread and an earthy note of Chanterelle mushrooms. Subtle tropical flavors of guava and mango evolve into tart nectarine, delivering a tangy finish. Try pairing with prosciutto wrapped figs or our fabulous stuffed mushrooms… READ MORE

Yellow/gold in color, with aromas of gala apple, graham cracker and white flowers signaling a bright and fresh style of Chardonnay. The flavors are lively with high notes of tangerine and pineapple.

Tasting Notes:

Aromas of Bartlett pear, toasted Hazelnut and a delicate wisp of citrus blossom are opulent and expressive. Broad and full across the palate yet showing restraint in the precise and detailed finish. Flavors of wine poached pear and Crenshaw melon contrast with an illusion of buttered popcorn. A slight saline sensation is like an ocean spray of freshness and lends a savory note. READ MORE
