DUNDEE HILLS ESTATE CHARDONNAY 2018 Dundee Hills, Willamette Valley
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer SOKOL BLOSSER
NEW in Vintages, this 2018 Dundee Hills Estate Chardonnay is a real head-turner and offers remarkable value. Bright medium straw colour, the intense, complex nose is focused on lemon meringue and key lime pie with lots of elegant, gently toasty, mineral notes. Dry, medium to medium-full bodied, well structured, slightly spicy, elegantly toasty, ripe, lemon-apple meringue flavours with a lingering, high acid, fairly cedary, mouthfilling, mineral-driven finish. A real pleasure to drink, especially with wild game birds - perhaps a roast grouse risotto with wild mushrooms and truffles. It has 13% alcohol, 2 g/L residual sugar and a respectable 7.1 g/L total acidity. Drinking extremely well and it will keep! CSPC 16988

TASTING NOTE: Firmly anchored in crisp apple fruit, along with highlights of peppery white radish, this takes a turn into a buttery finish which smooths out the mouthfeel. The interesting mix of fermentation vessels - new and neutral barrels, puncheons and a concrete egg named Huevo contributes to a lingering, nicely textured finish.
