Lemon, butter, and pineapple greet you in the glass. A buttery tropical fruit bomb, filled with honey and apricot in between the spaces. It’s lush and round in the mouth. On the palate, it is smooth and creamy with light oak tying together the pineapple and even some vanilla. Think creamy, delicious Pina Colada with coconut cream on the finish. Enjoy with grilled or lightly smoked fish or poultry. Pairs perfectly with camembert and other soft creamy cheeses of the like.
Balance is a tenant of our winemaking philosophy at Eola Hills. In the case of their Barrel Select Reserve Chardonnay, the fruit, oak and acid all come together in harmony. Barrels were selected from various vineyard lots throughout Oregon, showcasing their state's unique appellations and aged for 14-18 months before blending.
