Wine Review: This golden colored Chardonnay from Oregon opens with a floral bouquet accented by melon, lemon verbena and faint oak. On the palate, this wine medium plus bodied, round, smooth and juicy. The flavor profile is a lemon verbena and gentle minerality blend with notes of chamomile tea. I also detected a faint hint of oak and a dash white pepper in the background. The finish is dry and quite refreshing for a Chard. This is a very nice summer Chard that could be served slight chilled and enjoyed on the beach. With food, I would pair it with linguine with clam broth. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our 2017 Willamette Valley Chardonnay is finesse driven, balanced and classy, offering notes of citrus zest, minerality and chamomile. Texturally, the wine is focused and energetic with sufficient creaminess to balance wine’s structural acidity.
