Yes, you read that correctly. Siduri has released a chardonnay. Grapes are from Willamette Valley. It’s pretty good and, as we expect from these folks, interesting.
White flowers, orange blossom, and a hint of mango on the nose. The palate is lemon backed by pineapple with hints of banana and vanilla, with a long, succulent finish. $35 from the winery, $28 to club members. Unique and easily worth a try to see if it appeals to you.
We are of two minds about Siduri’s chardonnay history. One of us remembers a chardonnay being served at a Siduri dinner in the distant past. The other, older, reviewer does not remember this.
