2021 Kelley Fox Chardonnay Willamette Valley

Light gold color. Greasy and unpleasant aroma. This does not blow off with time. Foul and musty on the palate. Minerals are evident but overwhelmed by mustiness. Nice acidity, dreadful balance. Finishes moderately long and washed out. Dreadful wine. Not corked, not oxidized, not reduced. Somethingís horribly wrong here but I donít know what it is. I hesitate to call it flawed, but I can't believe a winemaker as skilled as Kelley would deliberately make such a wine. I was really looking forward to this wine. I hope my other bottles surprise me. "F"
