2021 Chardonnay Willamette Valley 375
The 2021 Oregon harvest will be one to remember. It was dry with heat spikes throughout the summer. Fortunately, the grapes were unaffected by the historical “Heat Dome” that descended upon us in June. The fruit was beautiful and balanced, with generous aromatics.
Pale golden yellow in color. A voluminous bouquet with brioche, pear, and light nutmeg spice. The palate feels like a wave; starting with a calm and smooth entry, then quickly transitioning into a brisk and briny midpalate. The finish is crisp with a Flingering nuttiness, reminiscent of sweet almonds and honey sweetened nougat.
