Authentique Eola Springs Vineyard Chardonnay 2016
Nicholas Keeler of Authentique Wine Cellars is one of the most dynamic new producers coming out of the Willamette Valley in Oregon. A French wine barrel expert by trade, he expanded his love and hobby of making wine in 2011 when he produced his first Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The focus now is mostly on single vineyard wines to show off the true character of the region. Made from 30 year old vines, this delicious wine is scented with lemon, apple and white flowers framed by medium toasted oak. Medium to full-bodied revealing touches of citrus and cream notes. It is crisp and clean at the end and a savoury touch adds a different dimension. Terrific stuff!
Robin says 'Nicholas has long admired Burgundy and uncoincidentally, this Chardonnay has so many attributes reminiscent of the great whites of Meursault. Broad and deep with lovely layers and a toasty finish.'
