2021 Gehricke Chardonnay, Russian River Valley, USA (750ml)
Aromas of fresh spring flowers intermingle with hints of ripe melons, tropical fruits, and baking spices. On the palate, notes of mango, guava, white peach and grapefruit are layered with touches of fresh lemon tart, dried coconut, and roasted macadamia nuts. A smooth texture and vibrant acidity add to the long crisp finish. Enjoy with a variety of tangy cheeses, prosciutto wrapped melon or butternut squash soup. For heavier dishes, pair with roasted chicken with fresh herbs or pork chops with tropical salsa.
Aged nine months in French oak, this modern, edgy white offers keen acidity and a spark of white pepper. Salty pear and minerality reinforce the vibrancy of lemon zest and garden herbs.
- Tasting Panel, 93 pts.
Well-balanced, subtly fruity and topped with light oak spices like ginger and toast, this well-made wine opens up slowly in the glass and should continue to improve through 2025.
