This beauty chardonnay hearkens to Burgundy in style - and price. It is very refined and restrained but shows all kinds of complexity. Expect a very well integrated nose of peat, flint, toasted hazelnut, buttercream cookie and subtle apple cobbler fruit. It is medium-full bodied, very finely tuned with restrained richness, minerality and very focused flavours. The length is excellent to outstanding. Tasted Nov 2020

Cool, clean, classy, lemon custard and yoghurt-scented, vibrant and lively chardonnay here from Rex Hill, a really nicely composed blend of multiple vineyards and soil types from throughout the Willamette Valley. I love the succulent acids, both the energy and comfort, the ease and sophistication. Great length. Premium wine. Drink or hold mid-term. Tasted November 2020.
Young and toasty, this barrel-fermented gem is still pulling itself together. The structure is there for aging over the next half-decade or longer, and the lightly tropical melon and papaya flavors are lovely. It just needs to balance out the barrel flavors a bit, but if you love a toasty Chardonnay, there's no need to wait.
