Ledger David Cellars
LEDGER DAVID CELLARS’ Central Point venue, dubbed Le Petit Tasting Room, is spectacularly located between the world-renowned Rogue Creamery and equally famous Lillie Belle Chocolates. Amid these culinary stars, Ledger David shines brightly, having recently burnished its reputation for premium estate wines by winning nine medals from the 2015 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.
Wine Enthusiast’s Paul Gregutt lists two Ledger David wines among his latest Editor’s Choice picks: 2014 Sauvignon Blanc (92 points), calling it “aromatic and compelling . . . fresh and full of delicious fruit,” and 2013 Primoris Chenin Blanc (91 points) about which he writes, “Chenin Blanc is quite rare in Oregon, and this wine, from vines planted just five years previously, may inspire others to follow suit… The balance and length are just right and the varietal character is in evidence throughout.”
Ledger David fruit comes from the Varner-Traul Vineyard planted in 2007 to Chenin Blanc, Malvasia Bianca, Viognier, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Malbec, Sangiovese, Tempranillo and Petit Verdot.
With so many stellar selections on its list, it’s no wonder Ledger David’s label was designed around an artist’s conception of three stars of Orion’s belt.
