Tan Fruit Chardonnay

2019 Tan Fruit Chardonnay Dux Vineyards.....$59.99
The aromas of the 2019 Chardonnay Dux Vineyard are alluring and savory, with ripe peach layers, beeswax, roasted almonds and pastry. The palate has a singular satiny texture and impressive concentration, enlivened by tangy acidity and streaks of graphite and finishing with tremendous length and energy. Wow!
Rated 98/100 The Wine Advocate

2019 Tan Fruit Chardonnay Vojtilla Vineyards.....$59.99
Vojtilla is a small, four-acre vineyard in the Chehalem Mountains that sits at around 5,000 to 6,000 feet in elevation and, says Jim Maresh, is influenced by the nearby Willamette River. Harvested in October this vintage, the 2019 Chardonnay Vojtilla Vineyard comes from Dijon clone vines planted in 1991, and it was matured in about 25% new Damy barrels. It has a stunning perfume of quince paste and mushrooms, pastry and flowers, and the palate is satiny, plush and pure, with a seamless tangy streak and long, powerful finish.
