North Valley Vineyards Chardonnay 2021
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
|Brand||North Valley Vineyards|
"North Valley is the blended, midpriced tier of the Soter portfolio, and it overdelivers in every way. This is a bright, spicy Chardonnay, with a jumble of pear and melon fruit highlighted with white flower aromas. The wine gains weight through the midpalate, with just a hint of barrel flavor from 6% new French oak." Wine Enthusiast 93 points (2018 vintage) Drink 2023+
Fermented and aged in a combination of stainless steel and oak, this Chardonnay has a delightful combination of bright acidity and a creamy texture. Tropical aromas like guava and shredded coconut kick things off, followed by coconut cream pie, lemon verbena and toasted filbert flavors.
