2019 Capriccio Rogue Valley Chardonnay
This wine, made from our oldest Chardonnay block on the estate, opens with honeydew melon on the nose folding in to herbal elements of lemongrass, mint, and a mild licorice root. The juicy melon pops on the palate, this time including Crenshaw, cantaloupe, and a tart Asian pear. The big fruit is accompanied by a broad density and weight that is highlighted by the spirited acid profile. The acid carries through to the finish and gives a gentle texture along side lingering characteristics of orange blossom and a gentle nudge of oak.
