Tasting Notes

The 2018 A to Z Chardonnay greets with aromas of lemon, lime zest, kumquat, quince, spiced apple, pear, peach, melon, apricot and lemongrass with hints of sage and fresh cut hay.  The wine dances on the palate, alive with flavors of citrus fruits, green apple and starfruit.  It is rich and yet balanced, fleshy and yet precise.  There is a grapefruit pith note to the finish, along with a linear minerality that carries through for quite some time after tasting. The 2018 A to Z Oregon Chardonnay is a racy, delicious example of unoaked cool-climate Chardonnay!

Recommended Recipe

Sautéed Sea Scallops with Steamed Bok Choy and Citrus Emulsion

1. In a small bowl, whisk together a teaspoon of Dijon mustard, 1/4 c of lemon juice, 1/4 c of orange juice, one cup of olive oil, and a dash of salt and pepper. Chill.

2. Steam bok choy over boiling water until bright green, around 4 minutes.

3. Dry and season scallops. In a very hot, medium sauté pan add the scallops and heat for 2 minutes. Flip the scallops, turn off the heat, and allow to cook for 1 more minute. Remove from pan and allow scallops to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

*Next level: Add toasted sesame seeds to the bok choy and quickly sauté in a pat of butter just before serving.
