2017 VGW - Chardonnay

2017 VGW - Chardonnay

"This offers ripe-pineapple and lime-juice aromas, as well as white peaches and wet stones, in a very expressive mode. The palate has a very smooth core of mellow, cashew nuts and white peaches with some very assertive and dense, fleshy-peach and praline notes to close. Drink or hold."

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

 

"A true luxury, with aromas of lemon oil, pineapple, and salted melon. Floral notes join honey on a palate saturated with lemon-lime, making a delicate impression on the tongue. A melted-caramel effect surpasses expectations on the finish."

96 points - Meridith May, The Somm Journal April 2020

 

"The 2017 Chardonnay VGW opens with fresh quince, brioche, red and yellow apples, gunflint and nutty aromas with hints of clotted cream, honey and yellow peaches. Medium-bodied, round and silky, it has pleasantly restrained, savory fruits with juicy freshness and a long, minerally finish."
