12 oaked Chardonnays that defy expectations
Wine Enthusiast | February, 2021.
“Bryn Mawr Vineyards 2017 Estate Chardonnay (Eola-Amity Hills); $40, 92 points.
Scents of flint, toast and cream open the door to a lovely wine centered around ripe and pretty nectarine fruit. Nicely focused and deep, the flavors show spicy wood highlights as well as a lingering finish which resolves in a wash of toasted hazelnuts. Credit 18 months in 30% new French oak.” —Paul Gregutt
