This wine is made from grapes harvested in the famed Willamette Valley, known for its cool climate and high-quality wines.

This chardonnay has a smooth acidity and a well-structured body with flavors of ripe pear, golden apple, and a hint of vanilla. The finish is fresh and crisp, leaving a lasting impression of the delicate balance between fruit and acidity. Overall, Kelley Fox Wines Willamette Valley Chardonnay is a lovely expression of what Oregon has to offer in the world of chardonnay.
Beautiful pale lemon yellow in appearance, this Chardonnay is brilliant and transparent in the glass. The nose has hints of vanilla, tropical fruits, and soft minerals and is bracingly fresh. The mouth mirrors the nose, and there’s plenty of acidity to balance the fruit without being excessive. The texture and finish are smooth and pleasing, but in no way bring any heaviness. There’s the energy of a delicious alpine wine.
About the Winery
Kelley Fox is one of the newest wineries created in Oregon. Established in 2007, this brand started off with producing only 100 cases. Within a decade, it has grown big enough to produce close to 3000 cases. The wines under this label are made from grapes grown in reputed and historic regions such as Maresh Vineyards, Momtazi Vineyard, Hyland, Freedom Hill Vineyard, Weber and Durrant Vineyard.
Located in the Dundee Hills, the first vines were planted here during 1970. The vines are located at an average altitude of about 500 to 700 feet. The pinot noir grapes grown here have a distinct texture because of the high quality of the Jory soil found in this region.
Thanks to the amazing history, natural extravaganza and the potential to produce intense fruits, the Maresh Vineyards are very popular in the Willamette Valley. Many winemakers source grapes from these vineyards for creating wines under their labels.
This is a Demeter-certified biodynamic vineyard located in the foothills of McMinnville. This place is replete with common and rare species of flora and fauna such as wild turkeys, goldfishes, herons, ducks, etc. The fruits grown here have a distinct mineral content.
Freedom Hill Vineyards
Known for its marine sedimentary soil, the Freedom Hill Vineyards are located in the Oregon Coast Range at the backdrop of the Eola Hills. The first vines were planted here during 1982. Pinot Blanc is the flagship fruit grown here. You will also find an abundant variety of Pinot Noir vines here. The average altitude of the vines here is in the range between 350 and 600 feet.
Since the year 2018, the Kelley Fox wines are being created in the winery of ADEA Wine Company. Kelley Fox and her team use only natural winemaking techniques to create the wines, as a result of which no additives or preservatives are used in the fermentation process.
