WINE REVIEW: Siduri 2019 Chardonnay, Willamette Valley, OR ($35)
by Andrew Chalk
Siduri, having established itself over a quarter of a century as an innovative pinot noir producer, pivots to produce their first chardonnay. Thus completing the Burgundy duo in their stable.
This is a creditable first effort. It veers away from the most oak-forward chardonnays from the west coast presenting its oak as a portfolio component along with fruit and secondary flavors.
Quite charming with food (especially fish and chicken).
Appearance: Light straw;
Nose: Lemon, green apples, ripe peaches;
Palate: Lemons, brioche, hint of vanilla;
