2015 Willamette Valley Chardonnay Sandi

92 points Wine Advocate

Crystalline, with layered aromatics of meyer lemon, orchard fruit, and pineapple crème mingling with chalk, cardamom, and saffron. As it warms, a wet rockiness is met with integrated wood, spiced and sweet, with texture and energy. The palate is concentrated and lengthened with a mineral cut of crunchy acidity with flavors of citrus blossom, flinty, wet rocks, peach, honeycomb, lemongrass, cereal dust, and salted caramel. The finish is defined and elegant, hinting at ginger nut and lemon. Unfined and unfiltered.

Fermented with native yeast, this Chardonnay spent eleven months in one new 228L French oak barrel and one neutral French oak barrel with minimal lees stirring. It was racked to stainless steel for an additional 7 months on the lees. This wine went through full, natural malolactic. No additives were used except SO2. Bottled in March 2017, unfined and unfiltered.
