Archery Summit Eola Amity Hills Chardonnay 2019
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
With exuberant aromatics, the 2019 Chardonnay springs from the glass with pear, melon and yuzu notes. That energy persists on to the palate, showing flavors of lemon custard, flint, brioche and green apple skin. The pale gold hue of this wine, bookended by silver edges, is something to behold. Bright, clean, and buzzing with fruit, this wine is a big reason why we’re so infatuated with Willamette Valley Chardonnay.
This is a single-vineyard expression from what may be considered the epicenter for great Oregon Chardonnay. It's poised on a gustatory balance bar perfectly positioned between fruit, acid and barrel flavors. Barrel fermented and aged (one third new), its polished flavors mix lemon custard, puréed pears, green apples, apple-pie spices and a hint of caramel. It's full through the palate and out a lingering finish.
Precise and polished, with green apple, floral lemon and toasty spice flavors that glide on the lingering finish. Drink now. 769 cases made.
