2018 GRAPE INK CHARDONNAY “1er Cuvée”
AVA: Willamette Valley / Tualatin Hills AVA
This single barrel selection is of Grape Ink’s finest expression of a near perfect 2018 vintage. The wine is an upgrade from Linda’s vineyard showing strong tension and incredible minerality. This wine is nothing less than special and shows the highest potential of grapes specifically isolated for quality and crafted to last a lifetime.
Showcasing mouthwatering salinity this wine overtakes our single vineyard Chardonnay in its balance of texture, precision and its characteristic natural acidity coming from grapes grown on the crown of the hill at 1000ft elevation. Grape Inks’s 2018 “1er Cuvée” release is a wine for serious Chardonnay collectors. The wine is intended to be celebrated upon opening or cellared for generations to come.
This wine is un-fined and unfiltered capturing the purity of its origin.
