"VGW stands for "Very Good White," and it's 00 Wines calling card. Comprising four vineyards and three Dijon Chardonnay clones (plus the Mendoza clone), it's wonderfully balanced—rich yet bright, lush yet tense, showing both structure and texture. A blend of four vineyards and three Dijon clones (as well as the Mendoza clone), VGW manages to be many things at the same time: rich, but bright; lush, but with tension; structured, and textural. This is the winery's calling card and largest production cuvée." - Winemaker Notes

"The current vintage of the 00 Very Good White (VGW) from 00 is a classic wine with lemony fruit aromas and a hint of acacia flower. There is some oak spice and a bit of reduction, but overall, the wine is elegant and balanced, and nothing seems exaggerated. The grapes are a blend of three Willamette Valley sites, mainly from the upper slopes of Seven Springs. They are foot-trod and firmly pressed before fermentation in French casks (29% new) and aged 12 months in a barrel and six more in the tank. This wine drinks well now but has the substance to improve with mid-term ageing." - 94 Points, Charles Curtis MW, Decanter
