The 2018 Chehalem Mountain Chardonnay is another brilliant release from 00 Wines in this vintage. As this slowly begins to unwind in the glass it releases stunning aromas of sliced pear, white peaches, lemon oil, salted almond, crushed stones and a dusting of vanilla blossoms that all take shape. On the palate this is simply gorgeous, as it displays a beautiful texture, with the perfect balance of fruit, acidity and minerality that persists through the gorgeous finish, which is framed by a wonderful saline mineral character. This is without question one of the finest examples of Chardonnay from the region, it has a classic Chassagne-like character, and will rival the best bottles of Chardonnay from anywhere in the world. This spent 8 months in 100% 2 year old Damy French oak barrels.
