Like its Pinot Noir counterpart, the Evenstad Reserve Chardonnay utilizes clonal variation and site-driven diversity to deliver a wine of superior quality and consistency from vintage to vintage. It is the flagship wine of our Chardonnay program.
This is one of the finest Evenstad Reserves to date, bringing a stunningly good mix of tree fruits nuanced by barrel flavors of butterscotch and toasted hazelnut. It all leads into a sappy, cinnamon-inflected finish that lingers gracefully and promises to age well through 2025.
This has impressively fresh and focused pears and lemons with a palate that holds very appealing purity and good length of fruit flavor. Classy chardonnay.
The 2016 Chardonnay Evenstad Reserve opens with a great streak of petrichor over fresh yellow apple and Bosc pear notes with accents of hay, crème fraîche and toast. Medium to full-bodied and creamy textured in the mouth, it gives up toasty flavors with a great core of concentrated, ripe fruit and juicy, mouthwatering acidity, finishing long and minerally.
