Roserock 2018 Chardonnay Eola-Amity Hills Oregon

The 2018 Roserock Chardonnay conveys a sense of power and elegance. A dense richness is apparent on approach with aromas of dried lemon, sweet-pastry, and Linden flower and Chamomile undertones. Full-bodied and focused, the wine displays supple firmness and excellent depth.

"Roserock lies on the southern reaches of the EolaĖAmity Hills near the outskirts of Salem, Oregonís state capital. Itís a large vineyard, planted mostly to pinot noir save for about 11 acres of chardonnay planted a little over a decade ago. Those vines grew an opulent wine in 2018, made firm and shapely by the coolness of the site and of the Oregon summer. It leads with scents of honey and peach, and has a hazelnut breadth. Itís built like a Beaune wine (no surprise there); for a chicken fricassee."

"Drouhin Oregon's Eola-Amity Hills Roserock vineyard is maturing nicely, as this rich, almost unctuous new Chardonnay demonstrates. Rippled with butterscotch around fruit flavors of apples and nectarines, this tasty bottle is buoyed with Meyer lemon acidity, and accented with whiffs of toasted hazelnuts. "

"Some attractive, fresh bread dough here with aromas of clotted cream, poached pears and almond milk. The palate has a smooth outer frame (full MLF here) with a fresh, fleshy core that has supple fruit texture. Drink now."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 92 Points
"The 2018 Chardonnay offers bright, fresh apple fruit with deeper, more savory bass notes of honeycomb, almonds and spice. The medium-bodied palate is super silky and bursts with tensile, mineral-laced fruits, expanding into a long, juicy and gently honeyed finish."

Wine Spectator - 91 Points
"Steely and vibrant, with pinpoint notes of green apple and grapefruit and a trace of flint on the long, crisp finish."
