2012 Evening Land Vineyards Seven Springs Vineyard La Source Eola-Amity Hills Willamette Valley Chardonnay

14.0% alc., $70 (sold out). Sourced from old vine Dijon clone planted in 1995. Whole cluster pressed, indigenous fermentation, aged 11 months in French oak barrels, 25% new, and further aged in tank for another 5 months on lees. · Light golden straw color in the glass. Aromas of lemon, mango and nut oil leap from the glass. Refined and restrained flavors of citrus, Asian pear and caramel with a thirst-quenching finish. Very juicy and polished with subtle oak seasoning. I could drink this all night. Score: 92. Reviewed May 14, 2015
