Nice wine. Anyone had the Lux Chardonnay from this producer?
  • 2015 Arterberry Maresh Chardonnay Maresh Vineyard - USA, Oregon, Willamette Valley, Dundee Hills (6/1/2020)
    Wine is bright and light gold in the glass. On the nose, I get beautiful floral notes, ripe pear, melon, and oak. Even on day two, the nose is soft on this wine. It's not exploding from the glass. The palate is more forward and leads with notes pear, some tropical fruits, seashells, some richness. There is gentle balancing acid throughout, but it's not as much a focus as some of my other Oregon faves. This wine is by no means lacking acidity, but it's not chiseled like my favorite Oregon and White burg producers. This wine seems more focussed on the presentation of the fruit, which is ripe and lovely. Regardless of this not being my favorite style, its damn good chardonnay and worth the high tariff. No one would mistake this for Burgundy, but I don't think people would think California either. This wine has some X factor that makes it so good despite not being square in my wheelhouse on style. This wine is aging well, but I see no need to hurry. Its got another 5+ years in it. It's still very youthful. I'm going to need to bite the bullet and buy some more. Wish I could still get these for $50
