3.5 stars "Conveniently sealed with a screw cap. Pale straw color, aromatic nose with floral notes, citrus, and tropical fruits. On the palate, crisp and surprisingly slightly fizzy, with grapefruit flavors on the finish. "

"This wine takes its name from the abbreviation of the French word for stainless steel, inoxidable. The wine was created differently from most Chardonnay you’ve had. We think we’ve succeeded in expressing the crisp, steely and fruit-rich side that we love about some old world chardonnays. What makes this possible is the use of exclusively Dijon clones, exceptionally well-suited to Oregon’s cool climate and exhibiting a richness that does not depend on oak. Entirely tank fermented, without malolactic fermentation or lees contact, INOX screams of the hallmarks of a cool climate: brightness, pinpoint fruit, and explosive aromas and flavors."
