The 2019 Chardonnay Bearwallow Vineyard is a very pretty wine, and the most open-knit of these Chardonnays. Tangerine oil, spice, dried flowers, chamomile and light tropical accents give this pliant, expressive Chardonnay so much immediacy. Of all the Rivers-Marie 2019 Chardonnays, the Bearwallow is the wine I would open first. It is so enticing, even in the early going.
