2016 Chehalem Reserve Chardonnay 750 mL
The Chehalem Reserve Chardonnay shows abeautiful balance of fruit, oak, and acid. Aromatically, lemon curd and brioche are elevated by a light hint of vanilla. On the palate, oak presence from barrel age provides an immediate weight and lovely viscosity. The mid palate is cut by a bright minerality and vibrancy that leads to a long finish with tension. Enjoyable now, these characteristics will continue to integrate as the wine ages.
