2017 Adelsheim “Staking Claim” Chardonnay, Chehalem, Oregon, USA
Aromas of lemon curd, Asian pear, white flowers, Bergamot orange zest, and cardamom. The flavors of lemon curd and Asian pear carry into the mouth, accompanied by a wet stone minerality. The firm structure and rich textural components linger on the palate.
