A to Z Chardonnay 2018
#58 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2019
The 2018 A to Z Chardonnay greets with aromas of lemon, lime zest, kumquat, quince, spiced apple, pear, peach, melon, apricot and lemongrass with hints of sage and fresh cut hay. The wine dances on the palate, alive with flavors of citrus fruits, green apple and starfruit. It is rich and yet balanced, fleshy and yet precise. There is a grapefruit pith note to the finish, along with a linear minerality that carries through for quite some time after tasting. The 2018 A to Z Oregon Chardonnay is a racy, delicious example of unoaked cool-climate Chardonnay!
Pairs best with fresh, vibrant, and lively foods that sparkle with acidity like Baja fish tacos or heavier foods that need a bit of a high note lift such as roasted monkfish and trout.
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Vibrant, with plush fruit, offering medium-weight lemon and quince flavors that take on expression and polish on the finish. Drink now through 2020.
This unoaked, no-malolactic wine doesn't lack for flavor. It's bright, spicy and nicely textural, with suggestions of citrus zest, green apple, lemongrass and bracing minerality. The grapes are sourced from all over the state—Willamette Valley, Southern Oregon and the Columbia Gorge. Best Buy
