Evening Land La Source Chardonnay
Based around the Seven Springs vineyard in the Eola-Amity AVA in Oregon, the Evening Land estate is a venture of Raj Parr, one of the world’s most renowned sommeliers, and Sashi Moorman, one of the brightest winemakers. The estate is nestled on east facing slopes of volcanic soils in the tempering Van Duzer Corridor that brings cooling winds from the Pacific Ocean. Dry-farmed since 1984, the vineyard has been biodynamic since 2007. Flinty on the nose, this outstanding Chardonnay also opens up with aromas of ripe pear, Meyer lemon cream, and toasty nuances.
