2017 Geødesy Chehalem Mountains Vineyard Chehalem Mountains Willamette Valley Chardonnay

14.1% alc., pH 3.20, TA 0.60, 59 cases, $75. Native yeast fermentation, native MLF, barrel fermented, aged 15 months in French oak barrels, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. · Light golden yellow color in the glass. Very shy nose with faint aromas of wax and yeast. More expressive on the palate, with flavors of lemon, grapefruit, pear and honey. Gentle and refined with vibrant acidity and a lip-smacking finish. Quite agreeable, but I wanted more fruit. Score: 89. Reviewed July 8, 2019
