2017 En Avant Southern Oregon Chardonnay
This Chardonnay begins and ends with the earth. It leads with a chalky, dusty soil, mineral driven nose. These earthy characteristics gently blend into citrus elements on the palate, primarily pomelo and sweet tangerine. The earth comes full circle on the finish, which is soft and resinous with balsam and tobacco flower. This wine, in all its complexity, reminds you the world is full of intrigue.
