The 'go to' place for Chardonnay, Pinot Noir wines

The State of Oregon, and more specifically the Willamette Valley region, is becoming the “go to” place for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines.

The grape growing conditions there almost perfectly emulate the areas of France where the same varieties produce some of the world’s most expensive wines.

I believe that it will not be long until the Oregonians produce a worthy rival to the greatest of the great.

One of the champions of Oregon wines is Left Coast Estate who not only makes notable Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines but also some very interesting and novel twists on the “usual stuff.”

Left Coast Estate 2018 Willamette Valley Queen Bee Bubbly ($36). If you saw this on the shelf you probably would pass it by as some cheap unsophisticated joke. The bottle is a typical sparkling wine bottle that is very unceremoniously sealed with a crown cap, similar to those used on beer bottles; unattractive yes, but there is more. A quick look will show that there is “junk” lying in the punt of the bottle. This wine starts off as a well made white Pinot Noir, which is then bottled and given a dosage of yeast, the “junk,” to start secondary fermentation. It is then carbonated by the addition of honey from bees living on the estate and sealed. The resultant wine is outstanding. It is dry, displaying a host of flavors and aromas never experienced in a wine before. Ginger, honey, pear and clove are the most obvious, but there are many, many more. I recommend this wine without question.
