Apolloni – Chardonnay 2018 – Willamette Valley

The nose is fruity, fresh and offers a fine intensity, a fine richness as well as a racy minerality. It reveals notes of wild yellow plum and small notes of pear associated with fine touches of small yellow berries as well as very discreet hints of citrus (kumquat, mandarine). The mouth is fruity, well-balanced and offers tension, fat, a very discreetly tight structure as well as fine acidulous frame. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of acidulous yellow plum and crushed/fleshy pear associated with fine touches of brugnon, small yellow berries as well as subtle hints of zests and flint/racy minerality. Good length. There are very discreet hints of butter on the persistence.
