Big Table Farm The Wild Bee Chardonnay 2020, Willamette Valley, Oregon

Light yellow in color with a golden tint.

Nose of apples, lemons, citrus, light oak, light tropical fruits, herbs, spices and minerals.

Light to medium in body and creamy, with medium plus acidity,

Dry on the palate with limes, light grapefruits, citrus, lemons, apples, earth, light wood, pears, spices, pineapples and black pepper.

Nice length on the spicy finish with limes, spices and bitter almonds.

This is a very tasty Chardonnay from Oregon. Very lightly oaked, which is very nice. Easy drinking and interesting.

This is a great sipping wine. Nicely balanced with mild complexity, and spicier than I expected it to be.

Would be interesting to try it in a couple of years, and see how it evolves.

Good by itself or with food. I enjoyed it all by itself, by the beach.

12.6% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$30.
