This Chardonnay has all the bright, crisp acidity one should expect from the varietal when grown in a cool climate of the Willamette Valley. Melon, lemongrass and pear aromatics lead beautifully into a palate of green apple and stone fruits.
93 POINTS, Wine Enthusiast. "This top-notch Chardonnay rests easy on the palate, rippled with citrus, apple, melon and guava fruit. Barrel fermented in French oak, 14% new, it’s fragrant in a toasted hazelnut tone and perfectly balanced around the fruit, barrel and acid components."
92 POINTS, Vinous. "Penetrating aromas of fresh pear, white peach and tarragon, along with building suggestions of chalky minerals and jasmine. Juicy and energetic on the palate, offering mineral-laced orchard and citrus fruit flavors that deepen slowly on the back half. The floral quality comes back strong on the incisive finish."
