Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The Old Stones Oregon Chardonnay displays a beautiful blend of American and Burgundian Chardonnay styles with crisp and refereshing orchard fruit and this unique buttery lees aroma and taste and reminds me of a Jura Chardonnay. Very complex with layers and layers of unique flavours. Enjoy with roasted partidge and a creamy mushroom sauce. Tasted April 2015. 91 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Rich and buttery with toffee, toasted oak, lees, tree fruit. This Oregon Chardonnay has some weight to it so pair with weightier white meats, cheese and nut platter, grilled seafood with butter sauce. Yum!
Tasted: May 2015
A zesty acidic attack on entry in this Oregonian Chardonnay. Clean and crisp. - Community Wine Reviews
