97points00 Wines 2017 Freya Hermann Cuvée Chardonnay (Eola-Amity Hills)

Editors' Choice

Double Zero tags its top wines with the names of the founders' parents. This is the best of a stunningly good lineup of eight Chardonnays. Produced as a “black” wine (intentionally oxidized) with native yeasts, it was aged 15 months in a single French oak puncheon. The seemingly endless details range from flinty mineral to layered lemon-lime, apples and peaches, with lush streaks of butterscotch, saltwater taffy and even a whiff of peanut butter. Let your imagination soar—there is seemingly no end to this splendid bottle. Paul Gregutt
