A to Z Wineworks Chardonnay 2019
The delicately colored 2019 A to Z Oregon Chardonnay has a fresh, lively nose like fresh cut apples and distinct tropical notes (honeydew, kiwi, quince, kumquat, Meyer lemon, pineapple) and undertones of spring flowers, lemongrass and marjoram. The juicy, vibrant palate has a touch of minerality, something like wet stones drizzled with honey, and a natural fruit sweetness building length and presence. Tank aging on lees gives this wine a creamy texture and an interesting, broad mid-palate. Round and rich while maintaining tension and excitement, the impeccably balanced 2019 A to Z Chardonnay reflects another gorgeous Oregon vintage.
