There are countless entry points on the nose of this fragrant and enticing wine, from zesty lime to green peppercorn. The palate is tremendously bright, showing Meyer lemon, Asian pear, and notes of hay. It continues with a second act of alluring flavors, offering slight tropical notes, a bit of earth, as well as amaretto and raw honey.
The 2018 Chardonnay exudes elegance, made with a deft touch of new French oak. The way the wine moves from creamy and pastry-like to tart and subtly toasty reflects Chardonnay’s eclectic and endearing personality. The wine represents an exhilarating new era for the variety, one Oregon and the Willamette Valley are very much at the forefront of.
