Ponzi Chardonnay Willamette Valley Reserve 2014

Editorial Review by Snooth Editorial:

Lemon curd, beeswax, apricot and a hint of cream on the nose. Flavors are bold and big and acidic, full of ripe lemon zest, baked apples, and grapefruit. Finishes long and clean with cream and vanilla notes.

An unoaked Chardonnay with a light nose of citrus -- lemons and limes give a fine bite that needs a bit more time to mature. Short finish.
