Country: United States.
Area: Willamette Valley, Oregon.
Green-gold in colour, lime-zest, some tropical fruit and honey on the nose with a hint of vanilla and toast, a bright palate with citrus and fresh apple overlaid with a touch of honey and toast again with a pure finish. This as lean a style of Chardonnay as you will find in the USA, or indeed anywhere in the New World. For once, comparison stylistically with Chablis does not seem ridiculous.
A blend of Alvarinho and Trajadura with a slight fizz. Ripe, aromatic nose but it is bone dry on the palate and finishes very clean. The wines from this northerly sub-region are generally considered to be a little more ripe and complex than the classic Vinho Verde style.
Light yellow, clean and transparent. The nose offers floral aromas of jasmine, as well as herbs, lychee, and honey notes. The floral notes reappear on the palate, along with apple, apricot, and mandarin orange. Presents good volume and the flavorful, persistent finish leaves a sweet and fruity sensation on the palate.
