A melange of peach, pineapple, and citrus fruits burst out the glass with secondary layers of toast and camp smoke adding nuance. Unlike traditional white wine, the palate is broad and defined more by grippy tannins than by acidity, giving the mouthfeel of a red wine with the aromatics of a white.
Appellation Chehalem Mountains
Acid TA 4.7 g/L
Aging 100% neutral French oak
Bottled Unfined and unfiltered
Cases Produced 200
ABOUT FULLERTON WINES
Fullerton Wines explores the rich and varied AVAs of Oregon by expressing the distinct personality of each vineyard and vintage in the bottle. Founded in the Fullerton family garage in 2011, the winery is a deeply personal family collaboration. Winemaker Alex Fullerton first got into the industry when his father Eric suggested the career path while wine tasting in the Willamette Valley after Alex had just graduated from the University of Oregon in 2010. That conversation led to Alex having a harvest internship with Penner Ash Wine Cellars which started the very next day. When making their first vintage in 2011, Alex and Eric made a few barrels of Pinot Noir. Despite the challenging vintage, the wine impressed and Fullerton Wines was born.
The Fullerton Wine Bar & Tasting Room is authentically Pacific Northwest with a Scandinavian heart that brings a taste of Oregon wine country to Portland. Guests come for hygge hospitality, wines that explore Oregon’s AVAs, and abundantly creative dishes. Opened in 2017, the Fullerton Wine Bar & Tasting Room is a cozy and welcoming gathering place for wine lovers to experience the breadth of Fullerton Wines’ selection while enjoying a selection of appetizers. Guests of the tasting room have the option to sit indoors or outdoors under the heated, covered dining areas.
