“Moxee” Chardonnay 2013
Exotic aromas. Chamomile. Cardamon. Lime leaf. Exotic in nature, but classic to the bone. Satisfying with minerality racing to a long finish.
94 points, Robert Parker’s “The Wine Advocate – “Another incredible white is the 2013 Chardonnay Moxee Vineyard, which comes from a cool site on the northeastern edge of the Yakima valley, situated at an elevation of 1,450 feet, from 41-year-old vines planted in pure limestone soils. Aged 15 months in 25% new French oak puncheons, it has Chablis-like notes of lemon curd, apple tart, brioche and crushed rock to go with a medium to full-bodied, supple, textured, even sexy style on the palate. Showing a terrific mix of both cool and warm climate characteristics, drink this beauty over the coming 2-4 years. “
