Walter Scott - Chardonnay - Freedom Hill Vineyard - Willamette Valley

About This Item

Overview: Walter Scott Wines is a producer based in the Willamette Valley in Oregon.  The operation was founded in 2008 by husband and wife team Erica Landon and Ken Pahlow. It is based in the Eola-Amity Hills district, and works with partner growers there and in the Chehalem Mountains, Ribbon Ridge,  and Willamette Valley AVAs.

The partner growers are committed to dry farming without the use of herbicides, pesticides or fungicides. Wines are made using native or ambient yeast and French oak. Punchdowns and other extraction techniques are kept to a minimum.

The name comes from Ken's grandfather Walter, and his late nephew Scott.

Tasting notes:Weightless power is what defines the Chardonnay from Freedom Hill Vineyard. It offers textural breadth, expansive flavors and incredible length, with singular aromas combining pure citrus with youthful flintiness. The palate swells with salty, limey tang before fleshing out to savory nutty tones, and the finish just goes on and on. This pure, singular expression is compelling, even at this early stage, and will offer more with time in the cellar

Pairing: Pasta with white sauce, white fish, scallops.
