Review:

Balancing the intensity of Walla Walla fruit with a lovely mineral acidity, Rasa's first Chardonnay is made in their trademark "big" style.

The heady scent is a mix of crisp citrus, honeysuckle, pear, smoke, and minerals. On the palate, full-bodied ripe pear and creme brle balance a vibrant swathe of pink grapefruit and lime zest. The long finish adds minerals and smoke to a concentrated, full-bodied, creamy Chardonnay that will delight Rasa's followers. - Jean

From the winemaker: "This is the first Chardonnay for Rasa Vineyards. The wine is exquisitely balanced with refreshing acidity and a long persistent finish. The wine paradoxically has both gravitas and an ethereal lightness". This wine will evolve for another 8 to 10 years and should reach its optimum drinking window in 5 to 6 years. Aromas include pear, white peach, hazelnut, wet stone, tangerine, honey and spice. It has intense flavors of citrus, ripe pear, hazelnut, cinnamon, minerals and white flowers.
