- 2012 Ayoub Chardonnay – USA, Oregon, Willamette Valley, Dundee Hills (5/20/2016)
Tasted blind in a Chardonnay blind tasting.
Light yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of orange peel, apricot, lemon and mixed yellow fruits. Flavors of lemon zest, cherry, yellow pear and an earthy pit kind of a finish. Medium to bright acidity, full bodied. Drink or hold. My guess was this is a 2012 California Chardonnay, possibly from Castello Amorosa. (90 points)
