The 2014 Vintage

From the very beginning, this vintage was the warmest on record at Bethel Heights in all our thirty-five years here.  The crop size was way above average, but we decided to thin very little, leaving a larger than usual crop on the vines to slow things down, hedging against too rapid sugar accumulation and premature ripening in such a warm vintage.  The soil was well charged with water from winter rain, so the vines were green and healthy until mid-September harvest, and able to ripen the crop to full maturity.

92 points, The Wine Advocate

"The 2014 Chardonnay Casteel Reserve showed great depth and intensity.  It has a perfumed nose of white flowers and melted candle wax, very well defined with lime and frangipane aromas developing.  The palate is well balanced with a crisp, citrus lemon and lime-driven opening...Tasting through their 2014s and a couple of early-bottled 2015 whites, Bethel Heights once again proved that they are one of the few Oregon producers to offer exemplary wines of both colors." --Neal Martin
