2017 Chardonnay, "Glacier Ridge"
While the 2017 vintage of Glacier Ridge was aging, we kept circling back to the delightful balance in this wine. Aromatics show limestone-inspired minerality that harmonizes with the hints of medium-toasted oak and fresh straw that are provided through the restrained oak regiment. The cool climate acidity is evident throughout the palate, framing in the varietally correct flavors of crisp apple and lemon zest. As this wine opens a bit, the finish lengthens and creates a beautiful finish.
