Shea Wine Cellars Shea Vineyard Chardonnay 2017
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
|Brand||Shea Wine Cellars|
This top-notch Chardonnay rests easy on the palate, rippled with citrus, apple, melon and guava fruit. Barrel fermented in French oak, 14% new, it's fragrant in a toasted hazelnut tone and perfectly balanced around the fruit, barrel and acid components.
Limpid straw-yellow. Penetrating aromas of fresh pear, white peach and tarragon, along with building suggestions of chalky minerals and jasmine. Juicy and energetic on the palate, offering mineral-laced orchard and citrus fruit flavors that deepen slowly on the back half. The floral quality comes back strong on the incisive finish, which lingers with very good tenacity and tight focus. 14% new French oak.
Sleek and steely, with vibrant lemon and lime flavors, accented by a touch of minerality. Drink now. 374 cases made.
