Lavinea Elton Vineyard Chardonnay 2017
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
"Shows superb depth and fine delineation, offering vibrant orange, Anjou pear, sweet butter and anise flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Powerful yet graceful in style, displaying superb focus and minerally thrust on an impressively long finish that features lingering floral and orange pith flourishes." Josh Raynolds Vinous Media 95 points Drink 2022-29
The floral 2017 Chardonnay Elton Vineyard is starting to show its potential, with lemon custard, white flowers, and vanilla. The palate feels more complete, with rounded fruit up front, but still an energetic core of acidity. It is ripe with fresh green melon and saline minerality.
