TN: 2019 Suzor Wines Chardonnay The Sunflower (USA, Oregon, Willamette Valley)

  • 2019 Suzor Wines Chardonnay The Sunflower - USA, Oregon, Willamette Valley (4/30/2022)
    Man, this was an absolute show stopper. It has a beautiful, light white gold color. Pretty nose, it shows hard mineral (gneiss) dust, and timothy hay, and generous and revealing pretty white stone fruit, with a sweet, bright, and fresh core, with some lovely spice. Also, it is crisp, and snappy! Don’t take generous and sweet to mean cloying or anything like that, its more a weightless power thing! It is layered and complex, in the way of a great trocken Riesling. This wine is strong, but not in your face and it begs to be drunk. Love it! (95 pts.)

Great note!

Reminds me of a catchy pop song that I just can’t get out of my head!

Nice note, Charlie. We just tried this last weekend, but were at the beach and maybe not paying as much attention as we should have. We enjoyed it a lot, but thought the 2018 might be showing a little better…at least right now. This still tasted very young and we had it after a 2012 Chablis, so it seemed a little toastier than it might have by itself.

The new Suzor releases are on deck for free run juice this week. Stay tuned. I just need to find the best picture from three years of tasting with them to go on the cover. I always look forward to Greg’s wines.

Not had this, but Suzor’s Gamay was divine! [cheers.gif]
