Notes from the Winemaker:
BHV Chardonnay is exclusively from Salem’s Bunker Hill, with 20-year-old CH76 vines on pure Nekia soils at an altitude of around 800 feet. BHV, the only west facing vineyard we work with, is exposed directly to the cooling ocean winds of the Van Duzer corridor. The aroma is complex with layers of mineral, smoke, herbs. It has a distinctly lifted flavor and intensity. The wine is crunchy, racy and complex on the palate. A lasting finish of citrus, herbs, and white flowers concludes with flinty, mouthwatering minerality, that has intensity but floats on the tongue


Ratings & Reviews

94 Points & #34 Top 100 Wines of 2018 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Sleek and seamlessly complex, featuring expressive floral lemongrass and steely mineral aromas and plush yet refined green apple and lemon flavors accented by spicy lees. Drink now through 2022. 692 cases made." – TF (Aug 31, 2018)

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This is a thick, even meaty Chardonnay with plenty of power. It rolls through well-integrated scents and flavors of lemon verbena, chervil and both green and yellow apples. The balance is impeccable, and the length and detail promise another eight to 10 years of drinking pleasure. It finishes with a soft hint of butter." - PG (12/1/2018)
