2018 Chardonnay Washington State

Brilliant in color with a pale yellow hue, the 2018 Washington Chardonnay offers a generous nose of apple blossoms, nutmeg and lemon curd. Melon and white peach coat the palate, followed by notes of quince and golden apple that linger on a vibrant, mouthwatering finish.

Wine Profile
Ratings
"Musky apricot pit, peach and spicy vanillin oak on the nose. Densely packed but quite suave and fine-grained in spite of its saline thrust. A very sappy, refined midweight with lovely salinity and tactile length. Offers much more than just fruit: sexy oak, minerals, cyanic fruit pit. Fresh stone fruits continue to emerge as the wine opens with air. Finishes with a lovely spine of citrussy acidity and sneaky building length. No shortage of weight or palate presence here but very shapely and refined. This superb Washington Chardonnay held up brilliantly in the recorked bottle and should evolve positively over the next several years." Stephen Tanzer, 93 pts.
