2018 En Croix Southern Oregon Chardonnay
Gold - Winepress Northwest
From the Winemaking Team: Our annual cross-section of Chardonnay from our estate opens with lemon candy and citrus zest on the nose, with creamy barrel integration and a slight herbaceous note. This wine carries a leaner style that showcases the acid profile but also allows for accentuated secondary notes like butterscotch, warm oak, and nutmeg. The wine finishes with tart fruit similar to golden kiwi and oroblanco, fresh cut lemongrass, and toasted brioche. A complex wine with flavors from many different avenues that complement each other at every turn; expect this wine to age with grace.
