2017 Clos du Soleil Vineyard Chardonnay 750ml
The Clos du Soleil vineyard is located on the east-facing slope of the Evenstad Estate, and is the only vineyard on the estate with an east-west row orientation. This Chardonnay vineyard is planted exclusively to Dijon clone 76, which accounts for its great density and persistence of flavor.

Fresh lemongrass and key lime pie aromatics fill the nose, with a lively undercurrent of crushed river rock and cut citrus. The palate is just as vivacious, with Bosc pear crispness and mouthwatering acidity counterbalancing one another for a marvelous tension and precision. The finish is refined, elegant and long-lived.
