Tasting Notes
The 2015 Torii Mor Chardonnay has a light gold color, a rich sweet citrus-floral aroma, a mix of garden flowers (honeysuckle) framed by lemon, crisp apple, light butter notes, and very light oak spices. The flavors have a semi-sweet and rich entry, with green and ripe apples, notes of green olives and light vanilla-oak spices finishing with brown sugar notes. The texture opens with bright acids and a strong frame of tannins, that persist through the long finish, complementing the flavors. The finish is very long with bright, rich buttery-fruity, barrel fermented chardonnay characters. Ready to drink now; this Chardonnay will improve with cellaring for 3 to 5 years.
Vineyard Notes
Kraemer Vineyard Trap’s block; near Mount Angel, Willamette Valley appellation. Olson Vineyard is Torii Mor's Estate vineyard, located in the Dundee Hills, is a 9.5 acre vineyard planted (own rooted) in 1972 with Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Draper clone Chardonnay, facing South-East at around 800 foot elevation on volcanic Jory soil.
Production Notes
The Kraemer Chardonnay, 81.08% of the blend, was harvested on October 6 at 24.3 Brix, 3.36 pH and .57gr/100ml TA The Olson Chardonnay, 18.92% of the blend, was harvested September 27 at 22.6 Brix, 3.45 pH and .675gr/100ml TA. The grapes were pressed and fermented in neutral puncheon (132gals) and barrels with about 39.29% new French oak inserts for 6 months. Barrel fermentation adds texture and depth extending into the finish. The juice was inoculated with D47, CH9 yeast strains, selected to accentuate ripe fruit flavors and provide richness of mouth-feel. The wine aged on the lees for 8 months following Malo-Lactic fermentation, and was racked and filtered after 21 months of barrel ageing before bottling.

Comparable with the finest Chablis available. Subtle long finish without the typical new world overkill. Starts cleanly and opens into a full expression of Chardonnay in the middle taste. Our favorite hidden gem on par or surpassing this winery’s best efforts.
