Domaine Drouhin Oregon family winery was established 1987. It is run by Véronique Drouhin of the Burgundian based Drouhin négociant founded in 1880. There tag line is 'French soul, Oregon Soil'. This 2014 Chardonnay brings together the estate’s three Chardonnay blocks. The grapes which are handpicked and sorted. These Chardonnay grapes are pressed immediately, and split equayl into tank and barrel. Once malolactic fermentation is complete, Véronique assembles the two portions into her final cuvée.
The 2014 Roserock Chardonnay leads with clean, fresh aromas of apple, honeydew, white flowers, shortcake and a touch of nuttiness. On the palate, the wine is generous and round, with flavors of citrus tart, white peach, almonds, and spice with a delicious combination of minerality and richness. The finish is long. Enjoy the wine through 2020.
