Review: 2018 David Paige Wines Chardonnay Willamette Valley

David Paige Wines is a new venture from former Adelsheim winemaker David Paige. The operation produces three pinot noirs, and this chardonnay.

Not at all weighted down by oak, this Burgundy-style wine finds a heavy note of lime leaf and lemon peel, creamy nougat, and barrel-driven vanilla in the mix. The finish shows more of that fresh lime character, a touch of green apple, and some spice — though that’s restrained. Crisp and pretty — and a solid jump away from the oak bombs of California — it just barely hints at florals on the finish. That said, it’s an approachable bottling that doesn’t at all overwhelm the palate.
