Bethel Heights Estate Grown Chardonnay 2015
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
This winery's Chardonnays are simply outstanding, from top to bottom. And as the least expensive in the range, this bottling is one to stockpile by the case. Sleek, supple and dense, it matches immaculate stone fruit flavors to bright acidity and pretty barrel toast. Balanced, rich and penetrating, it stands up nicely to wines that cost three times as much.
The 2015 Chardonnay Estate Grown is scented of white peaches, spiced apples and baking bread with hints of shaved almonds and allspice. Medium-bodied, fresh and expressive, it offers a good core of stone fruit and toasty flavors with a pleasantly oily texture and great length.
