Oregon Chardonnay is Catching Up

Our 91 point 2017 Goodrich Chardonnay was featured in “8 Oregon Chardonnays at 90+ Points: these new releases prove there’s more to the state than its Pinot Noirs”

According to Wine Spectator reviewer  Tim Fish:

“Pinot Noir gets all the love in Oregon, but Chardonnay is catching up. After decades of uneven quality, the grape is finding its place in the Pacific Northwest.

You would be hard pressed to find a better lineup of Willamette Valley–based producers than this week’s selection. Veteran winemakers continue to refine their techniques, and upstart producers are finding new ways to appeal to today’s consumers, particularly with good-value wines.

After a cold and soggy spring, the 2017 growing season went on to be dry and warm. The wines are full of fruit and generally soft, but the best have vibrant acidity.”

Our 2017 Goodrich Chardonnay was awarded 91 points:

“Floral and elegantly festive, with pretty tropical fruit and pear notes, laced with honeysuckle details and lingering on a plush finish.” – Tim Fish
