Willamette Valley Vineyards 2018 Tualatin Estate Chardonnay (Willamette Valley)

This is much in the same style as the Vintage 45 bottling, also from this vineyard, but this one got slightly less new oak during its 10 months of aging. Clean apple fruit, moderate acids and barrel toast that is smoothly integrated push it a notch ahead in terms of drinkability. Less new oak seems to be a better choice for fruit from this vineyard.
