Wine & Spirits Magazine named Ponzi Aurora Chardonnay 2014 Year’s Best Chardonnay. Rated a stellar 94 points by W&S, Chardonnay vines at Aurora Vineyard range from 10-20 years old. Their roots grow deep into the rich Laurelwood Soil, found in the Chehalem Mountains, which offers more intense flavors to the finished wine.

“This makes the most of a warm, generous vintage, offering plenty of body as well as drive. The scents of hazelnut and pear are lavish, with caramel accents that assert themselves but don’t overreach. The flavors are fulsome and elegant at once, and while you may luxuriate in the texture, its quiet energy will be the lasting impression. Generous now, it has the stuffing to cellar.” 94 Wine & Spirits Magazine
