2017 Chardonnay- 90 Points

35.00

Columbia Valley, Washington

White wine from United States

Drinking window: 2018 - 2023

  • (aged in 40% new Stockinger 600-liter casks and 60% used French oak barriques): Bright lemon-yellow. Chablis-like scents of lemon drop, mirabelle and fresh apple (this wine is from the same site as the Blanc de Blancs). Penetrating, savory Chardonnay with flavors of lemon drop and white peach intensified by strong minerality; as much about herbs and spices as primary fruit. Wonderfully silky for 12.5% alcohol. Finishes juicy, bone-dry and very long, with a distinctly cool, steely character. The soil here is sandy loam and calcium-rich caliche. (12.5% alcohol)
