2018 Walter Scott "Seven Springs Vineyard" Eola-Amity Hills Chardonnay

SKU #1501479 95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Pale yellow-gold. Fresh honeydew melon, Meyer lemon, pear nectar, oyster shell and toasted brioche on the deeply perfumed, mineral-driven nose. Juicy and expressive on the palate, offering densely packed yet energetic citrus and orchard fruit and sweet butter flavors plus a nervy suggestion of gingery spices. Shows impressive energy and mineral drive on the strikingly long, focused finish, which features a suave floral quality and resonating smokiness. Like all of the Walter Scott Chardonnays, this wine is not at all about fruit, in the best sense. (JR) Inner quote mark (8/2020)

95 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Ken Pahlow and Erica Landon are among the few who have a contract with Evening Land to get a small amount of chardonnay from its Seven Springs Vineyard. Their fruit comes from 1.7 acres on the shallow south ridge, where the soils peter out to almost pure basalt. They deliver a translucent wine: It seduces in seconds, a heady savor of bread dough and apple pie, with just a hint of caramelly oak behind the lees accents. But the wine feels as light as gossamer, lacy and fine, with a golden sheerness one taster described as sunlight seen through piecrust. Very expressive now, it has the acid structure and vibrancy to cellar. Inner quote mark (10/2020)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Chardonnay Seven Springs Vineyard has inviting scents of yellow apples, pie crust, spices and a charcuterie note. The palate is delicately styled and intensely flavored, with a fresh, lifted finish. (EB) Inner quote mark (12/2020)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This full-bodied, sappy wine has the sort of sweet-tart appeal of a very fine Vouvray. Ripe lemon and grapefruit carry the citrus fruit, with nectarine filling out the palate. There's a delicate saltiness coming up in the lingering finish. As it breathes it opens nicely into a well-rounded wine with palate-coating richness. *Editors' Choice* (PG) Inner quote mark (10/2020)
