01 Ponzi, Willamette Valley Chardonnay Reserve

Bridging the gap between Old World and New, this chardonnay tames the pinching minerality of Batard-Montrachet with the spicy fruit of the cool Northwest. The shimmering pale crystal wine is as understated in flavor as it is in appearance. The subtle palate is smoky and toasty up front. Crunchy almonds fill with golden apples and a cardamom lemon cream finish that quickly thins.
