Knock on Wood Chardonnay (Willamette Valley) 2021

Oregon Chard opens with a straw hue and aromas of sweet powdery melon, baking spices and a touch of citrus.

 Palate-A rigid beam of acidity that takes a moment in the mouth to come forth, lemony mid palate, *off dry pretty straight forward for an Oregon Chard.

*Off dry means it tastes SWEET when in fact it is bone dry meaning there is no residual sugar to be fermented. Off dry gives the impression it is sweet when it is FRUITY. 

This is a nicely made Chardonnay and paired wonderfully with my baked cod with parmesan laced spaetzle. I see it selling for up to $25 but I found it for $8 and of course wish i had bought more. At any rate, raise a glass!
