Koosah Farm sits atop the windswept crest of the Eola-Amity Hills at 700-1100 feet. The steeply-sloped, profoundly-rocky 82.5 acre site consists of 44 acres of vineyard, 6 acres of orchard with the remaining acres in oak savannah pasture. Here the family employs permaculture techniques involving hundreds of species of flowering and fruiting trees, shrubs and vines. This plant diversity encourages a healthy microbiome to naturally reduce disease and insect pressures. Additionally, Kevin has again pioneered new farming practices through the use of compost-teas brewed on the farm to aid in building soil fertility, microbial diversity and prevent disease.

99 Points The Wine Advocate: The 2021 Chardonnay Koosah Vineyard—the first iteration of this single-vineyard wine from Walter Scott—is already impressive from tank. Youthful hints of matchstick give way to intense aromas of white peach, jasmine, spring butter and crushed almonds. The medium-bodied palate balances layers of perfumed fruit with electric acidity, and its satiny, mouth-coating texture drives a very long finish. This Chardonnay offers an intoxicating combination of power and energy, and I can't wait to see how it performs from bottle.
