2017 Chardonnay, Prime Cut, Willamette Valley

Our most powerful Chardonnay selected from the vintage’s most textured barrels. Lemon custard, asian pear, and apricot are accented by lemon balm, jasmine, honeysuckle, lilac, and wet slate. This wine finishes like a super light lemon cake with white frosting and a kiss of coconut sweet cream.
