Open Claim 2018 Chardonnay (Willamette Valley)

A bright yellow-gold color, this reflects its 16 months in one-third new French oak. The flavor impact of the barrels is less toasty and more like raw wood, and needs further bottle time for full integration. The fruit is crisp and medium ripe, with a mix of apple, white peach, lemon and grapefruit. There's a thin streak of vanilla weaving through the finish. Paul Gregutt
