2015 Winderlea Chardonnay

900 cases produced

Buy Now Brilliant, golden straw in color, the 2015 Winderlea Chardonnay shines with a complex blend of aromatics. Citrus pith and wet stone follow through to a palate that is marked by minerality, poached pear, crème brulée, bright lemon and a creamy quality that reinforces subtler notes of toasty brioche. Slightly tropical, the texture and structure of this wine leave a long, perfectly balanced finish. ch_novin_weblrg

Sunshine in a bottle! This dry, barrel fermented rosé represents everything we love about pink wine. Pairs equally well with spicy barbecue, indian curries and summer nights on the back deck.

2015 Winderlea Meredith Mitchell Pinot blanc

359 cases produced

The 2015 Pinot blanc is our second release from our newest estate vineyard in the McMinnville AVA. The wine is aged and fermented in three different vessels: neutral oak, stainless steel and a tradtional clay amphora. Showing distinct aromatics of honeydew melon, grapefruit and wet concrete, this wine is lithe and textured on the palate with creamy softness balancing bright acidity. Lime zest, pineapple and guava complement the more subtle flavors of fresh coriander and dried herbs. 14PB
