Tan Fruit is a new project from Jim Maresh, proprietor of Arterberry Maresh, and the winemaker behind some of the most exciting Chardonnays in the Willamette Valley. For Tan Fruit, Maresh is purchasing fruit for sale from some of his favorite vineyard sites because "for Tan Fruit, there are no rules."
This Chardonnay is pure, ultra perfumed, intense and alluring with notes of white peaches and lilac intermingling with cashews and honeycomb. The palate has racy energy featuring salty, energetic acidity and an extraordinarily long finish. This is a must try for any Chardonnay lover.
