Adelsheim Staking Claim Chardonnay 2017
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Tangy, sappy and tongue-tickling, this exceptional wine simply explodes upon the palate with rich citrus, especially grapefruit and light peach fruit flavors. The acids are prominent and juicy, not sour, and this Chardonnay is as fresh and lively as you could ever hope to find in a state known for them.
Pale yellow. Fresh pear, melon and lemon curd aromas are complemented by suggestions of white flowers and buttered toast. Fleshy and lively on the palate, offering juicy citrus and orchard fruit and honeysuckle flavors and a hint of smokiness. Finishes long and silky, with gentle grip and a lingering floral quality.
Delicate and understated, with crisp apple and floral lemon notes. Drink now. 1,958 cases made.
