James Suckling Review
This has a lightly spiced, fresh pear and lime edge with a sense of restraint and freshness. The palate has a lightly creamy feel with fresh, driving clarity of pears and light peaches. Lemons to close. Some stainless and some oak here, keeping it fresh. Drink in the next five years.
A wonderful year for Chardonnay. Our Arthur is fresh and inviting on the nose, with beautiful citrus, lemon zest, grapefruit, white flowers such as magnolia, even some stony character, and a hint of toast. The acidity and the sense of minerality remind me of Chablis, but the mouthfeel is purely Oregon. Very complex, this Chardonnay could be cellared for a couple years.
