The 2015 vintage was one of the warmest growing seasons on record in Washington State and Columbia Valley saw optimal ripening and great yields for Chardonnay. This offering was sourced from multiple vineyard lots resulting in a complex, layered Chardonnay. After fermentation, approximately 30% of the wine was aged in once used oak barrels adding richness and mouthfeel without overbearing oak notes.
It is crafted in a fresh, soft style with bright apple and sweet citrus fruit character with subtle spice and oak nuances. This is a very clean, refreshing, fruity version of top-notch Washington Chardonnay. Pair with vegetarian pastas, white fish, or chicken dishes. It also makes a good accompaniment to seafood such as shrimp or scallops
My Wine Review:
My preference for Chardonnay is for those that are un-oaked. I do not like the oak flavor or after taste of some chardonnays. This wine, even though it was aged in Oak, had more of a buttery and smooth taste. It was great paired with a seafood pasta. It really held up nicely to the pasta and tomato sauce.
