Brothers Sean, Ryan and Matt founded Marshall Davis winery in 2011 from the six acres of vineyards surrounding their family home near Carlton in Oregon's Willamette Valley. Winemaker Sean follows a minimal-intervention approach to craft wines that are both varietally-honest and true to the unique terroirs in which the grapes are produced. The 2018 Yamhill-Carlton Pinot Noir is a blend of grapes from both the estate vineyard and the nearby Fenwood Vineyard. Both vineyards feature sloping and ridge-top Willakenzie soils left over from the Missoula floods and produce fresh, balanced Chardonnay. The superb raw materials are complemented by 10 months of aging in an 80/20 mix of neutral and new French oak barrels to produce a fine, focused and precise Chardonnay with citrus and stone fruit notes perfect for immediate enjoyment.
