2016 Gran Moraine Chardonnay Yamhill-Carlton
Winemaker Notes: Aromas of white peach, macaroon, navel orange, lemon curd, poached pear, rose petal and apricot blossom. The palate has lively acidity, gravely minerality and flavors of Nashi pear, honeydew melon, Golden Delicious apple and flint followed by a long citrus driven finish.
James Suckling - "Grilled lemons and white peaches with a supple array of stone fruit on the palate. There’s a lovely sense of layering here and a very freshly focused, lemon and yellow-grapefruit finish. "
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2016 Chardonnay Yamhill-Carlton has a lovely open nose of spiced apples, acacia honey, lemon cream, toast and dried white flowers. Medium-bodied with a great creamy texture, it fills the mouth with layers of honey toast, cream, ripe orchard fruits and spice, with great mouthwatering acidity and a long floral finish. Rating: 92+"
