The 2019 La Source Chardonnay includes fruit from a newer block of vines where Sashi and Raj have implemented a handful of techniques that they've learned over years of making wine in California. The rows are higher density, and the soils have less clay and more boulders and rocks. The vines are planted to Dijon and California heritage clones. The vineyard is stunning to look at - and its impact on the wine is equally impressive.

2019 La Source Chardonnay - Three Pack
We believe that Chardonnay from Oregon is one of the most overlooked and underappreciated categories in the realm of domestic wine. Our La Source Chardonnay comes from volcanic soils scattered with iron-rich rocks and pebbles, located just a stone’s throw away from the Summum Chardonnay plot. The 2019 vintage shows high-toned aromatics of green apple skin, underripe peach, and crushed rocks, which carry over to the palate and lead to a refreshing, acid-laden finish. A wine that is highly emblematic of the place from which it comes – a sunny, one-of-a-kind site in the heart of the Eola-Amity Hills.
