2012 Stoller Family Estate Reserve Willamette Valley Chardonnay

13.5% alc., pH 3.18, TA 0.79, 1,218 cases, $35. Grapes are from the oldest plantings in the estate vineyard. Aged up to 10 months. · Moderately light golden yellow color and clear in the glass. A little reduction upon opening resolves over time revealing aromas of lemon zest, pear and peach cobbler. Rather reserved and graceful, but with nuanced flavors of lemon, pear, white peach and almond. Smooth in the mouth with a good cut of underlying lemony acidity. Score: 91. Reviewed August 15, 2014
