2017 Open Claim - Chardonnay

2017 Open Claim - Chardonnay

"This has a very rich and complex nose with flinty and chalky, savory notes, floated on fresh lemons and grapefruit. The palate has a very fresh and compact feel. Long and elegant, it delivers a twisting, tense and long finish." 

97 points - Nick Stock, JamesSuckling.com Oregon 2019 Report


"The 2017 Chardonnay Open Claim features aromas of orange oil, crushed shell and lemon peel to begin, with accents of jasmine, tree bark, mushroom, crème fraîche, honey and nuts with a core of poached pears and apples. The medium-bodied palate is tensile with toasty fruits and that signature 00 silkiness, finishing long and textured."
