Brilliant pale straw colour with highlights of green around the edges and a watery hue. Aromas of white peach, dried honey and crème brulee fill the nostrils trailed by notes of biscuity oak, nougat and spice. Rich, sleek and fleshy textured yet refined in its feel, white peach, ripe nectarine and dried honey flavours are layered across the palate. Notions of crème brulee, cashew, nougat and spice linger in the background. Finishes long and fresh yet gently creamy in its mouth feel.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.

Other Reviews….
The 2018 Chardonnay Yamhill-Carlton offers singular aromas of green pineapple and herbs layered with beeswax, roasted almonds and saline. The delicately styled, silken palate reveals itself slowly, offering more savory and nutty nuances with time, and it finishes very long and lifted. This will have more to offer with another 2-3 years in bottle. Drink 2020-2026.
