Eyrie Chardonnay Willamette Valley 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This had a lovely waxy nose with notes of golden raspberries, cashews and hazelnuts. In the mouth the fruit remains sweet and expansive with bright acids backing up the dried apple fruit tones that lead to a finish with inner mouth aromatics of tobaco and cocoa powder and piercing minerality on the finale. Drink em if you can find them but this is holding superbly. 92pts

David Lett is a pioneer of American viticulture - especially in Oregon. Today, his son farms the vineyard in a very similar fashion to how his father did. This Chardonnay is full of iron minerals, yellow plums and apple fruits.

David Lett is a towering figure in American viticulture - especially in Oregon. Today, his son farms the vineyard in much the same way he did. This Chardonnay is full of iron minerals, yellow plums, and apple fruits.
