Willakenzie Chardonnay Estate

2017 Willakenzie Chardonnay Estate....$19.99
Compare to $27.49 at Total Wine and More (and $35 at the winery)
The 2017 Chardonnay Willamette Valley was barrel fermented with 75% malolactic fermentation, and it aged in about 30% new oak. It has inviting scents of poached pears and red apple skin with notes of white blossoms, white peach, cheese rind and oyster shell. The palate is light to medium-bodied with a lightly rounded texture and a good core of fruit lifted by juicy acidity, finishing long, clean and refreshing. A restrained but approachable style of Chardonnay. 1,452 cases produced.  Drink 2020 to 2023
Rated 91/100 The Wine Advocate
