Tasting Notes

This 2016 Oregon Chardonnay has a vivid straw yellow color. Expressive aromas of cantaloupe, apricot and lime zest are accented by honeysuckle, vanilla and toasty oak. Similar flavors of apricot, fresh cut lemon and melon are immediately apparent on the palate, followed by hints of apple, baked bread and orange blossom. This wine has a beautiful interplay of ripe fruit layered with lovely French oak, all balanced by fresh acidity. This wine will age beautifully through the next decade.
