Haden Fig 2022 Chardonnay Willamette Valley

2022 Haden Fig
Chardonnay Willamette Valley


While usually fermented and aged entirely in neutral French oak (228L from Francois Freres), this vintage required us to break in a new vessel. An advatage of using tonneau is that there is less surface area of wood to impart flavor to nearly double the usual volume. Apple, Meyer lemon curd, subtle brioche, and a whipser of creme brulee on the the nose followed by

a nicely textured mid-palate and bright finish once retaining a bright, fresh acidity complemented by the complex flavors of citrus and mineral.
