2018 Olema Chardonnay Reserve
The 2018 Olema Chardonnay Reserve is a blend of Chardonnay grapes hand-selected from premier vineyards in Sonoma County. This wine was aged in oak for a rich, creamy texture. This deeply-flavored wine features layers of fruit and a long, intense finish.
2018 was truly a winemakers’ vintage, and the quality of the resulting wines presents itself in bottle. Generous rainfall in February led to a late budbreak and extended flowering period. Beautiful and mild weather throughout spring and summer made for a healthy crop load. With no major heat spikes or weather events in the fall, winemakers were able to patiently wait to pick at optimal fruit ripeness.
The 2018 Olema Chardonnay Reserve opens with lovely aromas of toasted oak and honeydew. On the palate, the medium- to full-bodied wine has a rich, juicy mouthfeel with flavors of roasted hazelnut, golden pineapple, ripe melon, apricot compote and brioche, with a silky smooth finish.
