2015 Chardonnay Estate Arthur, Domaine Drouhin, Oregon, USA
“The 2015 Chardonnay Estate Arthur offers notions of fredh grapefruit, warm pears and honeydew melon with suggestions of coriander seed, baking bread and clotted cream. Medium-bodied, with a lively line of invigorating acidity cutting through the intense citrus and spicy flavours, it has a pleasant creaminess to the texture and some minerals coming through on the finish.” Lisa Perrotti-Brown.
Brilliant luminous yellow. Lovely fresh nose of subtle perfumes of peach and delicate white flowers. Ample, round mouthfeel and nice energy coming through the vibrant acidity. It has an excellent balance and a long, very elegant finish, delicious to drink now it should also keep well for the next 4 to 5 years.
