Bainbridge Island Vineyards

Kumeu River

Maté's Vineyard Chardonnay 2021

Pea shoot and young coconut opening into subtle yellow apple and plum and hay, with a delicate sweetness. Wow, great concentration, lots of energy, lime and kiwi bubblegum plus phenolic complexity and good mineral searing the palate. A bit astringent and built for long haul. Not quite ready. Some oak, some so2 showing. — a day ago

Pale lemon color with aromas of citrus and tropical fruits and floral notes. On the palate flavors of grapefruit, green apple and pear fruit flavors, some grassy tones, lively acidity. Medium+ finish ending with fruit, herbal, floral, grassy and mineral notes. Lightly chill so you can experience all of the nuances while you sip this fine wine. Nice, consistent. — 20 days ago
