2017 Laundry Vineyard Chardonnay
A bright lemon-colored wine that delivers aromas of golden delicious apples, yellow plum, lime and pineapple. The palate is dry with refreshing acidity and flavors of lemon drop candies. Pairs well with white pasta, risotto, cream-based chicken and seafood dishes.
A closer look at our Chardonnays:
Rick VanSickle 92 points — "The fruit is hand-harvested from old vines that are at least 25 years old in the Lincoln Lakeshore sub-appellation. Whole clusters were gently pressed and the slightly settled juice was transferred to 300 L, used French oak for wild yeast and malolactic fermentation. It was aged in only about 10% new French oak. This is lovely, with a sublime nose of wispy pear, lemon, underlying elegant spice notes, subtle apple and citrus. It has a creamy texture on the palate with notes of pure pear, lemon-citrus, crisp apple, spice and finessed through the finish. Good aging potential here, 5+ years."
