SPELL ESTATE Chardonnay, Russian River Valley 2015

This bright golden colored Chardonnay begins with profound aromatics reminiscent of crème brûlée, heavy whipping cream, pineapple and lemon blossoms. Showing excellent mid-palate weight this reveals rich flavors of hazelnut, golden delicious apple, pineapple and vanilla cream. The long and creamy finish lingers on and on. While this is already extreamly appealing, I can see this Chardonnay picking up lovely secondary characteristics over the next decade. Overll, this is a superb effort by talented winemaker Andrew Berge. (Best 2017-2026) - April, 2017 (OB)
