Crafted from 100% Dijon clone in 15% new French oak, the Ponzi Chardonnay Reserve is an exquisite evolution of more than 30 years of research. Winemaker Luisa Ponzi's stron gpassion for this noble varietal has established a new standard for the American palate -- one that is fresh, sophisticated and uniquely Oregon.
"Perfumed aromatics of honeycomb, quince, candied orange and cardamom lift from this nose along with heady gardenia, white pepper and meyer lemon. The silky texture of the palate is framed by flavors of verbena shortbread, grapefruit and oyster shell. Beautiful bright and long finish." –Winemaker Luisa Ponzi
