"The 2017 Chardonnay Chehalem Mountain is a stunning wine. The nose is open and inviting, offering aromas of quince paste, apple pie, allspice, grilled peaches and touches of clotted cream with accents of honey-drizzled almonds, jasmine and stone. It’s medium-bodied with an amazingly silky texture, fantastic intensity and savoriness opposed by juicy acidity, and it has a very long, layered and energetic finish."
"This has a gently stony and flinty thread, through a wealth of ripe-lemon and yellow-grapefruit aromas and some nutty, praline-like notes, too. The palate has a smooth and fluid feel with ripe-peach and spiced custard-cream flavors. Smooth textural glide out the back."
"One of eight Chardonnays from Double Zero, this is sourced from a vineyard just east of Ribbon Ridge that was originally planted by Dick Erath a half century ago. It's leesy and zesty, with chunky fruit flavors of apple, tangerine and peach. There's a streak of caramel and a burst of candied lemon as it sails into a long, smooth and concentrated finish."
Sourced from Block B3 in the Chehalem Mountain Vineyard, this Wente clone Chardonnay showcases the beauty of Chardonnay fruit farmed in the Willamette Valley.
