2017 Tenor Chardonnay

Tenor Chardonnay brings the best of new and old-world winemaking, in order to take advantage of the strengths of Washington’s climate and geography. Our goal is to create a pure and balanced expression of chardonnay as a stand-alone varietal. Like all Tenor wines, this wine is big and opulent, intense and fruit forward, but the oak is well integrated and the acidity delivers freshness and brightness on the palate. Barrel fermenting enables this wine to age gracefully, gaining layers of complexity through 4 to 8 years and possibly longer.

Tasting Notes

Lemon curd, white peach, marzipan, light caramel and bloomed nutmeg. Swirling brings some sweetness to the citrus driven fruit with crème brulee and a hint of graham cracker. The palate has enormous volume and silky texture while retaining a precise and polished feel. The finish is pithy and structured.
