Wine Details

A gorgeously aromatic wine, it features an immediate nose of ripe honeysuckle, crystalline minerality, sweet cream and grilled pineapple that gains complexity, adding Meyer lemon and papaya notes with a little air. Lush pineapple and sweet cream greet the palate, but are quickly upstaged by a lip-smacking mélange of citrus, tropical fruit-slathered rock, and a long, pure finish. With a vinous, electric quality and complexity comparable to Premier Cru Burgundy, Lot 549 is an incredible value. Like its Burgundian counterparts, you’ll want to make sure not to serve this wine too cold.

Cam Confidential

The Eola-Amity Hills AVA is home to some of the highest-scoring, critically acclaimed Chardonnays produced in America. Our first ever Eola-Amity Hills release is a special one – world class Chardonnay sourced from one of the most revered and highly rated producers in the state (retail $40 and up).

Oregon Chardonnays tend to fall a little closer to Burgundy than the ripe opulence of California, but both exist here. Similar to Burgundy, the Willamette lies in the middle of an ancient seabed uplifted by colliding continental plates. In the heart of the Willamette Valley, tectonic collisions caused the Eola-Amity Hills to rise up from the lowland valley, composed of various soil structures of marine sediment, volcanic basalt, and windblown Loess. These soil structures, combined with exposure to the Pacific through the Van Duzer Gap, are what allow today’s producers to craft some of the finest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in the world.

Sourced from the heart of the appellation from what has been hailed by critics as one of the greatest vineyards in the state for both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Lot 549 spent a year in barrel (about a quarter new French oak), another six months élevage in tank, and was made with incredible attention to detail and no expense spared.

I had never heard of the Eola-Amity Hills appellation, but I am now a big fan. I loved the richness of this wine and and the slight oak. I am ordering more (assuming it's not gone!).

It is always the first bottle to go at a dinner. I now have to bring two.
Wine devotees and novices alike pan for more. I am ordering more.
If you haven't tried it yet, please do. You will not be disappointed!

Refreshing and light oak finish. Minerally and elemental in texture. Great taste and a good way to start a 3 day weekend! We liked it.

Third time buying this wine. It’s crisp and not oak-y. No real reason to buy a different chard when you can have this one. Goes toe to toe with $20+ bottles, easily

This is such a fruity elegant refreshing summer white. A slight chill to the bottle will only improve the taste of this great value. Goes great with some grilled salmon

Classic Willamette Chardonnay: low on the oak. The grape definitely comes through. Highly recommended
