TN: 2018 Walter Scott Chardonnay X-Novo Vineyard

  • 2018 Walter Scott Chardonnay X-Novo Vineyard - USA, Oregon, Willamette Valley, Eola - Amity Hills (10/25/2020)
    Lots of thoughts on this - seemed to show a decent amount of oak initially, spicy, but nothing over the top. Quite rich, with the expected reduction / matchstick that lingers for a spell, lemony creaminess, and as my wife notated it’s smelled like a rice pot after cooking, in other words starchy. The true pay off started when the wine warmed, for then you saw the focus and precision kick in all the way to the neatly felt finish. I think one to enjoy now if you have a good stash lying around, otherwise lay this baby down a few years at least, it should payoff in spades I think. (93 pts.)
